Choose from the Woolly Ewe and the Woolly Lamb - these two sizes are created by changing from a double-strand to single-strand of yarn and going down in needle size.
These two sheep are given their personality by the way you embroider on their faces, so use your favorite sheep as your model. Or, as shown here, think of a celebrity sheep (Lamb chop) or the faces of your favorite illustrator (maybe Maurice Sendak) to inspire your embroidery.
These sheep bags would make terrific stuffed animals. Instead of putting a zipper in the back, simply stuff after felting and then sew closed for a wonderful woolly pal.
And, of course, you'll be the star of the Sheep & Wool Festival when you carry one of these bags with you!
