I loved seeing everyones bears when they were posted.I've been in a funk lately and have been unhappy with the last few bears I've made.I thought I would try something totally different and new to me.Here's the bear I just finished,I needle felted his body(my first time,what fun! )and made a traditional head ,etc.Okay,be brutal,what do you think?
I hope he makes you smile,he sure was a lot of work.I think I'l call him Finian for Fred Astaire's last musical,"Finian's Rainbow".
Hugs and blessings,Shari.
