This is Hershey! He was named by Kay Petal from Felt Alive after I requested name suggestions for him when I had a mental blank. He's a 5 way thread jointed bear made with Corriedale and Merino wool. He has german glass eyes and mohair eyelashes.
I'm currently working on another bear who should be making her appearance within the next day or so.

This lovely girl is my latest piece of needle felt work. She's based off the bunny that won the award at the Royal Adelaide Show. I intend to do more bunnies in the same design. This one I decided to call "Melody" and she's already been sold and is on her way to live in the USA.
I'm currently working on a brown bear. He'll be 5 way thread jointed. It's been a while since i've thread jointed any of my work so i'm making a few adjustments to him at the moment. He should be finished within the next day or so. I'm looking forward to showing him off. I tend to do a lot of "cartoon" looking critters but this one is a little more realistic looking in the face. Stay tuned to see what the finished product looks like!
