Hi there! I am new to making bears and am still in the planning process. I raise rabbits, rex, champagne d'argent and red/broken red NZ for meat, and want to put their fur to good use after harvesting them. I am going to tan them myself then make blankets, hats and BEARS!!
I love the look of needle felted, and would love to play with making a muzzle for a bear using this method and am wondering if this is possible, and if anyone has any tips to where to begin to have needle felted face on a real fur head. How would one go about attaching/making this? Do I just felt onto the hide? Leave an open spot, stuff with wool and build up? Or will it be trial and error...?
