Handful of Handfuls

As I mentioned earlier I was working on my first polar bear!

What do you think?

I've made this guy for a friend of mine, and he was copied from a photo of a real polar bear so they do actually lay like this sometimes! :o)


This little guy is felted from a lovely hand dyed mix of blues and violets. He actually has a top lip but it's a bit hard to see in the pics.

Minty is felted in a unique mint green, he's a basic little bear but still sweet.


Now here is a unique bear! Nothing quite like him has appeared in my work before.I do quite like him in his brick red and candyfloss hand dyes.


This bear is felted from merino in amazing blood red hues. He's darker in person.


He's just a lil sweetie, look at that face! Fabulous sea green wool.

And of course I am still working on more bears, I actually just finished something a little different and I'm halfway through a baby bear which is coming along nicely! So there will be more to show again soon.

I hope you have enjoyed these new creations. I had so much fun making them. I also want to take the time to thank you all for visiting my blog, I know some of you pop in regularly and that is just so sweet of you. Thank you all for your kind comments and your high praise, I really do appreciate it!

Much love and happy crafting to you all,

Hi Liza,
Your bears are so amazing. What a gift you have with a felting needle! Your work is outstanding.

You are absolutely right....we are out here...checking you out!

I love the "simple is sometimes best" theory myself.... Minty and Titch are my favs here.... they remind me of some of my little guys...

All of your new bears are adorable, but I confess that I am partial to your polar bear and the wee red one. Beautiful work. Thanks for sharing.
