    Bearskin Rug

    October Challenge _  Functional
    Here's my entry for October's challenge - it's a bearskin rug. It's actually a miniature (1:12 scale) dollhouse accessory now - part of a log cabin. I've also taught classes to miniaturists who wanted to make this little guy, so that's why the picture says "pattern for NF bear" - photos aren't my thing so when I have one I reuse it! LOL

    BEARSKIN RUG
    3" x 2.5"
    NZ Corriedale
    For the furry look I poked the darker "fur" wool through the lighter "skin" wool - very nice texture which probably doesn't show up in the picture.

    Made October 2011

    You would never know that it had been a piece of flat felt! It looks very pretty and cosy.

    I would not be too good at a tutorial. English is not my first tongue....Let me just say that it is super long to make.

    Thanks for you appreciation.

    That's a pity, but I look forward to seeing more of your work. I see you're in Quebec, so is your 1st language French?
