a little bear

i recently purchased this pattern for a bear. normally i pretty much wing it when it comes to creating patters, so i thought for once i'd use an actual one. the original bear by Vivianne Galli is quite adorable. mine's a bit sad. (as if it wasn't obvious the black one is mine; about 4" tall sitting)

scaling up

the characters are demanding to be bigger, and i'm beginning to oblige. the new guy on the left will be about 12" tall, rather than the usual 8", like the guy on the right. now that i'm getting better at needle-felting, the bodies are becoming a lot more sculptural (previously the bodies were sewn out of wool felt). especially in the bum dept. i'm obsessed with big round bums. and bushy tails. more progress pic to come..
