my seven year old wants to be a shepardess for halloween this year.  you know, it a long billowing white dress with a crook.  and, get this, she wants her 3 year old brother to be the sheep.

um, what do i do here?  do i just take a couple pounds of undyed merino roving and strategically glue them on the three year old?  seriously, if anyone has ideas or maybe wants to make me costumes (i would trade LIBERALLY from my store if anyone wanted to save my life here), i would love to hear about it.  she's been bugging me about this every day for other three months now.  it is NOT going to go away.

Almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea

I'd make him a little white Jumper with a hood and ears then glue or tack the roving on. Do you know what I mean?  Then I'd simply paint his face black with costume makeup. Would that work? Do you sew or only knit? If that idea works for you, I'd be happy to help you out in any way necessary. Just let me know.

Ooh use this stuff. "Shearling Faux Fur Fabric" it looks like exactly what you are looking for. Its kinda expensive, you'd probably end up spending as much as a store bought costume.You might also get away with using fleece, which is cheaper.

poly fill stuffing and hot glue, i would say. it won't be durable, but hey, it's only for one day.

omg! if i had any prayer of sewing that stuff into a sheep, i would do it!  that is too cool.  it seems like halloween is forever off, but i tell y'all, with four kids, it just comes quicker and quicker every year!
