Meet Winston, my first FURGOTTEN BEAR needle felted re-creation

Furgotten Bears is the name of my new line of bears. I have decided to use my art to help minimize the impact on our landfills. I now go on the hunt for unwanted, abandoned bears, and clean them up and give them an extreme make-over. I needle felt a whole new art bear from the old one. This gives each bear a new unique second chance to bring joy to someones life! Watch for my Etsy store opening soon!


  1. Melissa,
    The link to my blog doesn't work because the r is missing in the link.

    Here is a link to the shop if that helps.
    Thanks so much!

  2. What a fantastic idea!

    A neglected but once loved teddy bear is a sad sight to see, and a teddy in landfill is just wrong!

  3. I totally agree Starfish Studio! Thanks so much for your post!

  4. oh how adorable! I just love this idea. Reusing and recycling is a huge trend right now. And anything to love again is a sure sign of what I call heartmade.
