I just finished a bear for my youngest, aren't they cute?
It has wool batting in the middle, and natural coloured alpaca on the outside. I still have to reinforce the head and limb joints to stand up to man(baby)handling.

Comments? Advice?

(this is my first completed project post, I can't believe I actually finished something!)

Wow! I love his face- it reminds me a little of Teddy from AI.

I am super impressed that this is your first felting adventure. Good work!

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

And all that jazz

Oh wow that is soooooo cute!  I LOVE the eyes.  That looks so amazing for a first time!  I'm afraid to try because I'll end up impaling somebody's something and that can never be good  Grin

Thank you!
Ya, I poked myself many times, and broke 2 needles in the process, we must suffer for our art!  Wink
He is pretty cute, his head is a bit smaller then I'd like, but if I keep poking the body it'll probably firm up and get smaller, I think at least!
I think I'm going to try a dragon for my other son next, and some wet felted booties. It's frigging addicting!
