I have been trying to work out a way of making sheep badges for the Sheep Fair on Sunday at Spitalfields City Farm… I’m getting there but its slow progress. I have to be able to make them quick enough to sell inexpensively, but also interesting and sheeplike….!
My first sheep was made quite large as a prototype – I used black and white rolled felt chopped into rounds to get a textured surface and to attempt to simulate fleece. He came out looking quite like my logo.
However two of his legs fell off!! and the black in the rolls made him look a bit dirty once he was fully felted. So on to version number two….
