I made this sheep for my friend's birthday. She spent last summer as a shepherdess for some nuns, where she promptly fell in love with the sheep there. I made this sheep out of an old holey cashmere sweater I had so her face and legs are nice and soft. The body was also made of the cashmere sweater but I needle felted some wool on to the cashmere to make her furry like a sheep. She also has needle felted eyes. I didn't have a pattern, just made up the shapes as I went. In hindsight I kinda wish her face wasn't as long.
she does not have a name yet, as that task is up to my friend.
Now the problem is that my friend's birthday is not for another three weeks and I'm dying to send it to her!
here she is on my chair:
and then we went for an excursion outside:
I think she's not so sure if she likes it:
