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.

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 :)
