Thanks!!!  Cheesy

The eyes are just glass beads - nothing special about them particularly. I do try to find two that match well and are slighly more tubular (a little longer from hole to hole than side to side). Glass beads tend to have some irregularities of that kind.

Very rolly polly!! I have another on the work table but she hasn't reached satisfactory levels of cuteness yet (although my husband and son disagree). =^..^=

Thanks!!!

Thinking twigs make perfect sheep legs is just as logical as thinking acorns caps make perfect mouse hats!! =^..^=

Thanks!!!

The twigs really are perfect for the legs and I do have a lot available!! Smiley

I used some core fiber to establish the body and position the legs, Merino for the face and ears and Romney or Border Leicester for the fleece.

Thanks!!! Smiley

Hardest part is getting the legs in the correct position! lol!!

My photo cube is white so I went looking in my fabric stash for something that would work with a white sheep - I chose that fabric precisely because it sort of looked like a meadow in bloom! =^..^=

Found some twigs that I thought would make perfect sheep legs:



It came out nicely!! Smiley

Thank You!! Smiley

I find that I really enjoy making these!
289  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Re: Yet another tapered rope necklace variation on: April 05, 2012 01:31:55 PM
Thanks!!!

I'm thinking of possibly doing a variation in which I have wire in the smaller ropes. That might open up some interesting possibilities! Smiley
