I was so excited when a recent client commissioned a sheep portrait for his daughter. What fun to create a wolly pet out of wool – i’m feeling some kind of “circle of life” song may be applicable here….
I had a great time felting this little “Oxford” sheep, though her wool came from local Wensleydales. She’s all boxed up and on her way to Canada this morning. What do you think the real sheep would think of this little reproduction? Not much, probably.
Cute as a wolly button, if you ask me! I loved working on this sheep so much, i added a “custom sheep” listing to my Etsy shop. If you know a sheep farmer, fiber enthusiast or other lover of lambs- you’ve found your next epic gift item! If you happen to sheep obsessed yourself, go ahead and splurge! You won’t regret it.
What animal are you hoping to see bound into my Etsy shop?
