Very cute!  Now you need a whole flock! Cheesy

The background almost looks like a meadow with lots of spring flowers...

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! =^..^=

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.

Cute!
I'm also amused by the fact that your first thought on finding some twigs was 'sheep legs'!

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