|Little Felted Sheep|
The tutorial at Knitpicks is easy and quick for making sheep. I made some modifications, as I do not have black paper clips, so I modified and used pipecleaners and I do not have dark brown wool, so I used grey instead. I imagine that you could also use black for the face, too,but I don't have black either. I added eyes to the first one I did, but I think I like them better without them.
I had to modify the instructions, because the pipecleaners will not go through the felted wool as I imagine paper clips would. So instead of poking them through, I laid them over the sheep and used wool and felted them in place (see picture below).
|Lay leg down and use wool to "felt" over the leg |
and secure it in place. You will bend the legs down
when you are done.
