Baaaaabs!

Today, I took the most awesome class and learned how to needle-felt a sheep! It was a lot of fun.   The class was offered through one of the Spinning and Weaving Guilds I belong to – Blue Ridge Spinners and Weavers.

The class was  taught by Dina, one of our members.  She has created some of the cutest sheep – and they sell like hot cakes at the fiber festivals.  I’ve been wanting to learn how to make one of these forever!

I was just amazed at how I could go from the raw wool and dyed locks….

To creating the various felted parts of my sheep…

To the slightly fuzzed sheep…

 

 

 

And finally, to my finished ewe…..”Baaaaabs” (we had to name our sheep, and “Baaaaabs” immediately leapt into my brain!)  I LOVE how she turned out!!!
