Christmas themed bears

Though I'm still working on autumn themed bears, I've finished three Christmas bears and they're delighted to say "Merry Christmas" (a bit early) to my blog readers.

Let's meet Rudolphmade from white string mohair, is inspired by a white Christmas. I needle felted his muzzle, nose & mouth, and named him Rudolph because of the big red nose. His ear pads are hand shaded in green, and he wears a big red bell around his neck. Besides, his paw pads are made from checkered cloth in matching colours.

Rudolph is about 10.25 inches tall.

Twinkle is made from white curled mohair & antique blue wavy kid mohair. I gave her eyes a bit of hand shading in blue as she’s a panda. Besides, I needle felted her muzzle, nose and mouth. Her paw pads are made from ivory wool felt and needle sculpted. She wears a crystal bell ornament from Swarovski to match the Christmas theme.

Twinkle is about 8.25 inches tall.

Holly, the Santa’s helper, is about 6.25 inches tall and 8.25” with hat. Besides yellow alpaca for head, red and green mohair is used to make him a Christmas themed bear. I needle felted his nose in brown with tiny holly on it to reinforce his image. He wears matching color embellishment around his neck and a red hat to complete his characteristic look.

Holly is about 6.25 inches tall and 8.25” with hat.

They are now available for adoption on my Etsy shop:

My Halloween bear

Here comes my Halloween design, Mollie, a sweet (not scary) panda witch, made from white alpaca and apricot mohair.

Mollie is about 6.25 inches tall and 7.5” with hat.

Usually, I scissor sculpt puffy cheeks for my bears. However, as I'd like to practise more on needle felting, I not only felted her a round nose, but also needle felted the muzzle and mouth.

She wears a cat pendant and a witch hat.

She is now available for adoption on my etsy shop: 

She has amber glass eyes and hand shading around the eyes.

Halloween reminds me of witch, black cat, Jack-o'-lantern, pumpkin, fallen leaves and ............... autumn. I'm working on autumn themed bears, stay tuned.

With Love: a charity bear

With Love (11cm): a bear that cares

With Love is 11cm tall, made from sparse mohair. He's a charity bear for Bears That Care 2011, sending the message - compassion and caring for women with cancer.

He is holding a heart which is made from vintage velvet rayon, as he’s a “bear that cares”, and comes with a bamboo steamer. 

The 2011 Bears That Care charity auction of hand-crafted bears will be held on Nov 16, in support of ovarian cancer research, education and awareness. For more information about the charity auction, please visit:
