Making Felted Sheep
Another flash back post. some needle felted sheep. I hope you like them.
With the start of show season gets closer I realise I only had a few sheep left. Time to make sheep parts.
I have to make bodies and heads. I roll them up and give them a few pokes. I use 2 needles held together with a hair elastic. It makes them comfortable to hold.
There will be white sheep too
Once they are rolled and poked they get put in to the legs of some nylons.
These will go into the washer and dryer with a regular load of laundry.
I also make wet felted snakes to be cut for legs and a flat sheet of felt to cut ears out of.
I can’t find my bag of black spare parts. may need to make more.
This is what the finished sheep will look like.
They all get a safety pin on one side so you can wear them.

Really cute Ann – I love them. Didn’t realize that you used the washing machine for these. Good way to save time. 🙂
Thanks Ruth, I used to needle felt them individually but it took too much time. This way I can assemble them and then put there wool on. I do them at demos a lot.
Your sheep are such pretty colours and very cute! (You have a well-oiled production line going there.)
Thanks Lyn. They really are cute with all the different colours aren’t they.
Cute sheep, and as Lyn says, quite a production line.! 🙂
Thanks, Koffi, they are easy to take to demos and I am working while having fun.
They are absolutely adorable and I love their bright cheerful colors.
Thank you Judy
Darling rainbow sheep! I love them. Such little personalities, too!
Thanks Marilyn, I like the eyes on the black ones. If I do the opposite on the white ones they look like zombies.
Oh, I like those.
Thank you Judy
these are so cute
Gorgeous, Ann 🙂
Very cute! And a good idea to make parts seperatly to assemble later. You could perhaps save even more time in production by using pins or small nails as eyes.
Thank you, Maybe I will have a look at quick attach eyes.
