What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be sure to follow the directions closely and watch your felting process so the bears don't stretch out of shape. Also, go light on the yarn for the facial features as it spreads out when you felt. Use a good fabric shaver to smooth out the fuzzies for a more finished look - or leave the fuzzies since they are bears afterall. Take photos of the bears before you felt them and then again afterwards. I forgot to do that and wish I had the comparison shots to show and reference on future projects.
