* Sheep

Posted on October 30th, 2004 by maitreya. Filed under Toys (cat and kid).

From the same Japanese book as the Horse comes this sheep. The fabrics are from a couple of shirts that the stupid washing machine wrecked recently. I only used one arm from each shirt, so I’m trying to think up other things to do with the rest. It’s the first time I’ve done a project with knit fabric, which was kind of a pain to work with. I also got the topology wrong a couple of times, getting the legs stuck inside the body. I dislike the sheep the more I look at him, so I’m going to let him hang out until Christmas in a drawer where El Chupacabra can’t get him. I think I will send him to my 2-year-old nephew.


Update: the sheep has grown on me. There’s something funny about the way I embroidered his eyes. One side of the sheep is angry, and the other is calm and placid. Much like my nephew, so I hope he liked it.
