I bought a needle felting kit at Ebay last year. There are 10 colors of wool, a couple of special needles and a foam-rubber-like cushion in my kit, and it was actually cheaper to get it from the US than trying to find it here in Sweden for that money!
I’ve made a tiny heart and a flower while practicing this technique, but this teddy (that I made last month) is the first real item I’ve felted. I wanted to make something really tiny and I think I’ve stretched out within my limits with this one. He is very tiny and still has details like arms, ears, a pink nose – and a tiny bed with a blanket of his own!
I gave him to my mom on Christmas Eve 2007, because she collects teddy bears in all sizes. Though this one is the smallest in her collection now.
Inspiration for making tiny softies you can find at My little Mochi which is Myra’s blog. She makes the cutest things ever and her makings always inspire me. She was the one who inspired the story telling about my tiny elephant softie that so many of you enjoyed. Myra tells great stories too!
Even his bed and his little blanket is tiny tiny! :-)
The bear is adorable! He is so cute and tiny. I love his bedding. What a fun gift for your mom.
haha, s? s?t!
Oh. My. Gawd. How cute is that!!!!!! I love him, he’s so sweet :) You did a great job!
That’s cute! I’d be tempted to make him a whole set of furniture (not felted, of course). And some friends, too! *^v^*
Oh he is sooooooo cute Hanna!!! And how sweet that you gave him to your Mom for Christmas. :) I’ve made a couple of needlefelted bears myself, so I know all too well how time consuming they are to make….and how painful they can be to make as well. I stabbed myself more than once with one of those barbed needles. Ouch! Hope you’re needlefelting experience was pain free. :D
Oh . . . so adorable, it made me forget to breathe for a minute! I cannot imagine the dexterity needed to needle felt something that tiny. I would have perforated myself for sure.
Hanna, he is absolutely adorable! Because you know I love anything small enough to use a matchbox for a bed.
(PS. Thanks for the sweet words too! :) )
That is too cute. Funny, my mom collects teddy bears too!
He’s so tiny !!! I really want to try out wool felting this year ~ Julia x

Thank u for a terrific site… makes me happy to come here all the time.

Hanna, what a cutness! :)
and that pink tiny nose!!!!
adorable creation :)
This is just the BEST!!! I love all the photos of the little guy! Reminds me of Stuart Little in his matchbox bed!!!
ADORABLE! Love the little bed and quilt, too! My daughter has been making ‘Cute’ softies, too…I highlighted them on my blog in my last couple of posts!
Wow, he’s so cute and so tiny. I just got the stuff to try to make these… Is it hard? I’ve seen some really cute ones on the internet. I hope I do as well as you!
I echo all the above sentiments!
And I’ve tagged you, Hanna, at my blog.
I hope you are up to the task.
Cute! I love to do needle felt, but I am only a beginner…
Oh my! he is the cutest teddy! I love his matchbox bed!
He is so cute! You did a great job.
[…] Felting without the egg shaped base was easier, so the beads I rolled one day sitting outside in the sun with a bucket of water and soap turned out much better! They became the felted bead necklace that I love. In 2007 I did some needle felting too, and I want to do that again. Then you use a needle to bake the wool together into little shapes, and it is a process that is more delicate and slow than wet felting. The flower on my beret is needle felted. […]
awwwwwwwwwwwww he is so cute i want him lol
Oh my goodness! You should sell them! I love them, and want one for photo opps for my pet rats :D
