Just a quit little post to show you the sheep I have been working on for my Christmas sales. They do stand up so you can use them as a decoration but they will all have a pin on one side so you can wear them.
They are made with a combination of wet felting and needle felting. The ears are cut from a wet felted piece of fabric and I wet felt the snakes I cut for the legs. The body and head are needle felted. The ears, eyes and all the curls are added with needle felting. I hand dyed the curls. They are Border Leicester or Blue Faced Leicester I can’t remember.

I am glad you like him Karen. Did I put a hat or scarf on him? was he all white or a black faced one? You should post a picture
Great Idea – I bet they sell really well.
Thanks Ruth. I usually make them with white wool this will be the first year with coloured sheep.
I hope people like them.
