March 2016. Felted Creatures. Day 23. Moon Bear

Moon Bear
Today is the full moon, with the culmination of all things set in motion from the new moon on the 8th. Weeks ago, I started making micro bears, pocket sized little guys to keep handy and act as a reminder that it's good to take time out during the busy day and remember to enjoy the little things that life brings. The big interest in adult coloring books as a way to relax and reconnect with that part of us that likes to play, was the inspiration for this series of little cuddly felts. Throwbacks to childhood, they are something soft and snuggly to hold and a bit like a worry doll, only with the focus more on what's going right.

What are you grateful for today?

Moon Bear is mouse sized and made of needle felted wool with seed bead eyes and comes with a red heart.


  1. Love Moon Bear's chill pose—no hunched shoulders or furrowed brow. Love your incorporating moon awareness into this micro fellow, and your positive spin on worry dolls. You've created Gratties—little pocket-sized companions to remind us to play and live with gratitude.

    I am grateful to have met you and your art during the January 2106 30-in-30 Challenge.
    I am grateful that one of my former students refers to the organizational strategies he has carried forward from our sessions together as his Pocket Dotty skills : )

  2. Cute! Today I am grateful that it is Friday. And I am grateful for the peanut M&M's I am munching on.
