Some of my crochet bears made and finished using various techniques. May these inspire others to try their hand on crocheting bears
Flip Flop Bears I made quiet a few. These are fun as they can pose many ways. Above Flip-Flop bear is crocheted and felted.
This Flip-Flop bear is crocheted with Magic thread and Brushed !
Combination of crochet parts and needle felted parts, assembled together to make one solid piece.
All wired for multi poses.
Mixed Media I use for my fabric bears and crochet bears as wel. This is one of my N.O.S.T.© Bears. I won many International Awards with this design and is unique for ThReAdTeDs®.
This bear was crocheted from wool and then wet felted. The face/muzzle is needle felted with a wet felted finish (to smooth out the holes left by the needles). The hat, jacket, bag and slippers are wet felted from merino wool.
The paw pads are leather look.
Thank you Conni!!
I think your bears are very recognizable as being yours. I too love needle felting but have done only a few all needle felted bears.
I don`t think it is copy if using a learned technique in your creations. Most techniques, if not all, are around for many, many decades.
I am thankful to all those wonderful people who wrote/write down all their knowledge so we could learn.
The way we use these techniques varies, which results in many unique creations.
Look forward seeing you at Wiesbaden!!
