A fuzzy new bear has arrived!

Hi Everyone!

Today I wanted to introduce you to a rather rare addition to the Little Handfuls Hug. Lewis is one of the very few furry bears I have ever made and he is a true one of a kind little fellow! Along with his furry coat, he is also weighted with steel shot and is larger than many of my other bears at 5 inches tall!

Lewis is felted from a gorgeous NZ dyed corriedale in dusky blue

He feels so sweet to hold!

Look at those toes! They turned out great!

He has lovely big eyes and shaded accents help give him his unique look.
My daughter Amber was home and wanted to get in on the shoot! (usually it's a dog or a cat that tries to steal the show! lol) Amber is 8 and I can say quite happily that she truly loves my little bears!

Wow! He's absolutely wonderful! I've wanted to give my needlefelted guys a little more weight but was not sure how to do it - how did you get the steel shot to sit firmly & securely in his belly? Love the toes! bearHugs, Bec
