Making Sheep…..for the Sheep Fair

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.

Felt Sheep Version 1

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….
