RICCIOLINO a new baby hedgehog

It is snowing again...but my new creation, a baby hedgehog, already enjoys a touch of spring.
He's a sweet little fellow, and I had great fun designing and crafting his flowery nest. I think he is as cute as can be! :-)

He is now available for adoption on my Bearpile shop:
Ricciolino is now adopted! Thank you!

ZAC the penguin

I have found some time to finish my second penguin. I left him aside for some days because I wanted to get my polar bear cub finished...
I think this little one came out cute! This time I chose the typical adult penguin colours, black and white. And his feet are the ones that I have shown in my tutorial.
Here he is, Zac the penguin!

He's now available for adoption!

DODO the baby polar bear

It took me a lot longer than I thought to finish this baby polar bear. I must blame it on my perfectionism. I started rooting in some alpaca fur into the needle felted muzzle so that the transition from the needle felted area to the fur looked more natural. And I just couldn't stop. I kept adding and some point my subconscious must have decided that all the needle felted area was going to be covered. We are talking hours of work, what with the fur rooting, and the scissor sculpting I had to do afterwards. But. There is a but. And it is, that I'm very pleased with the result. So, it was worth it, I think!
And finally, some pictures.
This is Dodo.

Dodo has wiring into all four limbs, and he has a wire spine. You can pose him in practically any way you like!
I am doing a red  felt fish for him, I think he needs a bright accessory to complement his whiteness.
