SNEAK PEEK : New Needle-Felted Bear!

Hey Guys & Gals...

So last week when I had some spare time at work (I work midnights) I busted out the needle-felting kit that I had bought almost a year ago and finally worked up the courage to give it a try. About an hour later (and many many painful finger pokes with the "daggers" as I like to call them) I had finished the head of the cute little bear! I am sooo very happy with the way he turned out. As it was my first attempt ever at needle-felting, I was honestly expecting a "Frankenstein's Bear" as the final result, but I think he is actually quite nice to look at! I think I am enjoying the needle felting medium the best as far as methods of soft sculpture go. It allows for more creativity, which is great for me as sometimes I have a hard time translating my ideas into a formed paper pattern. With this method, you just make the shapes to form the creation you have stuck in your head. So without further adieu, I am proud to introduce (well, at least the head of) my newest Newelley.Bears creation "Boysenbeary"! Enjoy the pics and please leave comments if you happen to like what you see...
