My Attempt at a Stuffed Sheep

All I can say, is I'm glad my daughter is only 6 months old and doesn't know what a sheep looks like.

The Iron Craft Challenge this week was to make something on the theme of sleep/bed/night.  I had some leftover white minky fabric from my taggie toy, so a sheep seemed like the perfect craft.  I pictured a lovely stuffed sheep like they used to sell at Bath and Body Works.

These sheep were adorable.  I think I could have an entire room full of them. Image source.

Mine did not turn out quite so nicely.  I was going to write up a tutorial but I don't think that's going to happen until I fix it a bit.  Basically, I used this pattern to make a ball and then added sheep features that I made up.

The end result looks a bit like a cross between a sheep and an armadillo.  Hopefully with a little tweaking I can improve with time, at least by the time my girl is old enough to recognize a sheep :)

  1. I think it's pretty close, don't think it needs much tweaking at all.
