Needle Felted Bear
This was my first attempt at needle felting a 3D sculpture. I got a kit from http://www.livingfelt.com/shopfeltkits.html . The directions were very good. My bear is a bit on the skinny side because I ran out of white roving. The bear is about 3.5 inches tall. I know this isn't really knitting...but it's somewhat related .

I've got lots of FO's to post in the next few days. I'm almost done with Christmas gifts. Wooohooo

He is adorable. Looks like a white Tigger. You just want to hug him!

Thanks everyone. It was fun to make. I think he looks like Tigger too! :D I'm going to put him in my son's stocking for Christmas. Ohh..maybe I'll knit the bear a cute scarf.
