This is my third needle-felted fella... meet Portico. =) He was made for a dear love of mine, who happens to be TOO FAR AWAY right now...

My mom commented that his butt was too big. Too bad. I like big butts. =P

He also traveled with me a little. He's a worldly little polar bear.

Just for reference, my first and second projects, left to right respectively.

I'd love to get better at this craft! I'm finding it SUPER satisfying. Any comments/criticism is greatly appreciated! That, and perhaps some knowledge of where to get more roving.... And are more needles required? I've only got the one that the first kit came with.

What a cutie, well all 3! Smiley And I really love the little duckling- so sweet Smiley

You`re doing awesome for having only done 3 pieces. I`d get a multi tool, if You want to keep doing them, so You can get the basic shapes done faster for bigger items. And I get my wool from etsy, mostly Wink

Keep going! Smiley

I had a go at needle felting, and from my abortive efforts I can confidently say that you're a needle-felting natural to be able to make such fantastic things when you're only just starting.

Aww, he's so cute! I haven't done any needlefelting in ages, looking at this reminds me that I need to start again  Smiley

You've done a great job. Love the detail on the duck and hedgehog. That polar bear is adorable.

These little guys are too adorable! I especially love the little duckling. His markings and shape are so realistic.
