Lowena if making bears is making you happy go with it.

Remember The Dark Side is Hotel California, you'll go back when you are ready.

The bears are gorgeous BTW.

Aw they are lovely and made me smile. If you are ever feeling down look at the little family and it will brighten your day.

I noticed they had some needle felted animals in the sewing shop the other day, must be popular at the moment.
Are they a solid lump of felt, or are they stuffed?

Hi @Bodgeitandscarper  needle felting does appear to be "in " at the moment. I love it  <3
It is all solid, you start with core wool fibres and needle them into the basic shapes you require ( body, head, snout, ears, limbs ) then , if required, once they are firm you add coloured roving wool for the clothes or to change the colour of the creature. Then you felt the components together. It's very relaxing, easy to do and easy to undo mistakes......what's not to like ?  :D

They're really cute! I wish I had the patience to make any of these. My grandchildren would really appreciate it. I bought a couple of buddies from Ann: https://www.annthegran.com/landing/embroiderable/stuffed.aspx for their bithdays this year. It would surely pay off to try and get them involved next time and create them myself.
