This little Polar Bear take a small amount of white roving, felting needles and pipe cleaner. This is the cutest little bears to hang on a nature tree or a gift topper. These little Bears will be delightful around the holidays. A pictorial tutorial is available on Martha’s web site. Enjoy this project and show us the results. This incredibly soft polar bear — perfect for a stocking stuffer — was made by needle-felting. The technique involves sculpting shapes from unspun wool called roving, by manipulating the fibers with a special needle until they interlock and become dense. An experienced crafter can make one in about an hour. For each bear, you’ll need about two ounces of white roving, plus very small amounts of gray roving for the eyes and nose.
