Needle felting with fake fur and real wool...and new shop SHUNKLIES
My only experience making fake fur bears was in Highschool....where we cut shapes out of the fake fur and sewed them together....what a lot of work ,lol. I do plan on doing that, at some point but I just wanted to see what felting into fake fur felt like....(or felted like ). It works great, though there certianly is a learning curve and my critter here is a bit lopsided as I just sort of made up a design as I went .
Anywhoooo,expect more of these guys....(I bought several yards of fake fur a year ago and am determined to use it. ) I will share tutorials as I get things figured out .
