Meet Lavender with her necklace and Emerald with her beach ball and beach blanket.  These were made to order for a lady to give to her two daughters.  The beach ball is needlefelted as well and it's the first time I've needlefelted accessories to go with a bear.

This is Theodore, the first bear I've made that can stand up on his own!  I think I'm getting the hang of this bear-making-needlefelting lark.  Now, if I could just get the arms and legs the same size first time round (without having to make an extra arm or leg) then things would be sweet!  Theodore (Teddy for short) is made from pale blue wool with dark blue pads on his hands, feet and inside his ears.

Christmas Cards and Ornament

The reindeer is just held with a little piece of double-sided tape so it can easily be removed and used as a tree ornament.  I used 'Silly Season' Kaiser paper and ribbon I bought a while ago.  Rubons of stars and inside the card reads "Believe in Magic" with another star.

Again, Kaiser scrapbooking paper and gift tag.  Rubon 'Merry Christmas' and a gold ribbon to add a little extra depth.  No stitching in this card.  Inside is a chipboard greeting 'warm wishes'.

A felt Christmas tree shape, leather thong with red bead, and I stitched a little penguin with his red/green scarf on.  Co-ordinating thread to stitch the penguin to the tree finished it off (I was going to just stitch a border round and then glue it on, but decided the glue might show through so I stitched it on instead).
