I’ll be teaching a Needle Felted Bear Class at the farm this weekend. For those of you attending, or trying this at home, I’ve put together a Pinterest Board with lots of inspiration for you! There are bears of all shapes and sizes and colors and breeds, felted by many talented felting artists. You can keep it simple but making a roundish shape, adding some bears, a face, and a little bear muzzle, or spend more time adding legs and feet, and feet pads, even clothing and accessories.
Be sure to check out the classes at Alpaca Meadows, including the Bear Needle Felting Class. Felting Supplies such as Felting Foam, Felting Needles, Multi-Needle Felting Tools, and Finger Protectors are available online and in our Farm Store. You might also be interested in our Needle Felt An Animal Friend Kit by Back to Back Alpaca, a great kit for learning the techniques of three dimensional needle felting.
Learn how to transfer a design of your beloved pet onto fabric and needle felt your pet with these instructions on Craftsy, How to Needle Felt Your Pet for Truly Unique Keepsake.
