Making Felted Sheep

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.

    1. 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.

  1. 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.
