I am fascinated with fabrics and textiles, and I love to experiment. I am drawn to whimsical, fun art. Many of my teddy bears are designed as I go along, I sometimes start with a sketch and definite idea, but often see them change as I work with the material.
I have been doing some needle felting lately and decided to needle felt a five way jointed teddy bear. I have jointed him with heavy silk suture thread. He has black bead eyes and needle felted nose, mouth, eyebrows and paw pads.
