I made this guy to go on our tree, this Christmas.  He's approximately 9" tall and is made of needle-felted polyfill covered with wool roving.  His face, hands, and feet are sculpted with polymer clay.  I ran out of wool roving, so he's not as bulky as I wanted.....but, he'll get more fur the next time I pick up roving Smiley

THANK YOU!  I totally winged it with this guy.  I rigged a wire armature and filled the inside with scrap white yarn, then filled him out some with fiberfill.  Then, I made the face mask and eyes out of polymer clay.  I made the teeth separately and pressed them into the top and bottom plates I used for his mouth.  He has a tongue in there and the teeth are pressed into little pink gums.  I did the hands and feet out of clay as well.  After I placed the clay parts and baked them, I built up the rest of his body with felted fiberfill and covered that with the felted wool roving.  I'm so glad you guys like him Smiley

Oh my, he looks so incredibly perfect.  Like he walked out of the movie onto your tree, seriously.

He's great.  You did a fantastic job combining the clay face and hands with the the felted body.
