Description

This charming bear found a scarf that will be just perfect for her winter hibernation. After a hectic spring and summer with the cubs, frankly she's looking forward to a bit of a rest!

I needle felted her from pure wool fiber over a wire armature that I made. Needle felting is a sculptural process of building up form by compressing wool fibers. To do this, I use a special needle with tiny barbs and continuously poke the fibers. The barbs on the needle entangle the barbs on the fiber and it sticks together! The different colors are from using different colors of wool.

Her eyes are glass. I made her claws from polymer clay and glued them to the armature before I began felting. Her scarf is a strip of wool from an old sweater that I bought here on Etsy. By running it through the washing machine, the fabric "felts" so I can cut it without it fraying.

Standing on all fours, the bear is 11 1/2" long, 7 1/2" tall, and 5" wide. I have tIed a small metal tag to one of her rear legs to show that she is an original, completely hand made, one of a kind piece of art.

By the way, I am happy to do custom orders.
