Do you love all things to do with Christmas or Xmas? I do. Here are some cute, little sheep to make for any occasion really. Cheap, easy to make and only take a scrap of wool and a few other items you probably have hanging around the house somewhere. Delight all of your friends to give as gifts, hang from your Xmas tree or add to your Nativity set.
1. Length of white or colored wool - any ply, but 8 ply or 14 ply is good
2. Pipe cleaner or extra wool (black or brown)
3. Length or ribbon or raffia
4. small piece of felt (black on white wool, or white on brown or black wool)
5. Googly eyes or acylic paint for eyes
1. Wrap coloured 8 ply wool very loosely around 2 fingers. The more wool you use the fluffier the lamb's body. With an extra length of wool, tie between your fingers very tightly using your other hand.
2. Remove the 'bow' from your fingers and cut through the loops on both ends to create a pom-pom
3. Cut a face shape out of the felt and glue it onto the lamb. Paint eyes with acrylic or glue on googly eyes.
4. Decorate with a bell or a flower or any other decoration around the neck.
5. Cut 2 pieces of the pipe cleaner to a size suitable for your lamb, thread through the body and bend down to make legs. Alternatively, crochet a chain to a good length with black or brown wool and thread it through the body to dangle down on each side.
6. Cut a length of ribbon or raffia or metallic ribbon. thread it through the lamb and knot it so the knot is hidden in the fleece.
