Title: French knot sheepies in a wreath pasture
Post by: hgddm on October 01, 2011 01:54:33 PM
I made this for the wonderful MissingWillow in the September birthday swap! I'm a big fan of her farm life blog, so I jumped at the chance to make her something. This project was heavily inspired/influenced by this Craftster post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=288784.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=288784.0) :)



I constructed it inside a hoop, then had the idea to attach it to this wicker wreath I've had forever. It reminds me of my parents' place in the country :) Then I covered the back side with a circle of felt and added a picture hanger.


Close-up of the sheepies. I love this fabric, but I only have a few small scraps of it left.  :'( It was perfect for this hoop!

Yay! Thanks for looking!

Hey, that's mine!  I love receiving handmade items that reflect the animals we raise on our farm.  This was so very sweet to receive and has a spot on my farm art wall (at least until my daughter steals it)!  Thank you again, hgddm.   :)

Love this ;D The "pen" is such a clever way to frame the cute little sheep.
