Woollies – real and felted

On a walk along the coast we came across lots of sheep yesterday.

I made these felted sheep in the past few days. The white ones are my favourites at the moment and I think a contrasting head is better than one in a very similar if not the same colour. There’s room for improvement.

Sheepish I

Today I made this little sheep from a wet felted ball of grey Cheviot wool. I felted the face on with a felting needle.

It sits on a flat grey pebble which I picked up on Ullapool’s shoreline last week.

This little sheepish looking creature is my prototype. The next Crafts market is coming up soon and I had thought of making something like this for some time. I am quite pleased with it and will refine the look as I make others.
