TY TY TY TO TB&F AND MINDY! I'm highly honored to've been chosen to present a little something different on Needle Felting.

And rather than a teddy-style bear, Mindy agreed to a pictorial presentation of some of my techniques for designing and creating a Polar Bear 'Bust', to appeal to those looking for a more advanced level in this skill.

She allowed me to present my own images to demo the step-by-step process; hopefully it will give ppl wondering about this craft an appreciation for what goes into building good solid realistic miniature Fiber Art forms.
The Pin is under 3" tall, actually quite large-scale for my work.
Thanks to everyone at Teddy Bear & Friends!

Looks terrific Bobbie.  I can't wait to see it when my issue arrives.  Our issues here in Australia are about 2 months behind, and so I shall have to be very patient.  I think a little man in a rowing boat brings them over from the States - very slowly!!!!!

Thx One & All - your comments are very much appreciated.

But Jodi, think what THERAPY this could be - like creating a voodoo item...all aggressions worked out......

Can anyone tell me where I can get a copy of the magazine or maybe someone could scan Bobbie's article for me and email it to me. My daughter has fallen in love with the pin and wants me to make one for her.

Jodi, what did I tell you??...and there is no one better in the world of needle felting to learn from than Bobbie...she is definitely the "goddess of needle felting" in my book. She has helped me thru so many things in my learning process!!!!

Helped you? Well if I did it was by osmosis, learning by experimenting on your own. I've seen your skills increase just like all of us that stay with it.

Yes, but watch your fingers when you get aggressive!!! Those needles are SHARP!

I am afraid of the needles !!! But you know my spirit just doesn't feel creative. But I am sure some day the time will be right again. Keep an eye out for me.
