PROJECT: COUNTING SHEEP. ย A project I made especially for a friend’s baby ๐Ÿ™‚

These are the sheeps’ stuffed bodies and legs. ย I love the clean, white yarn.

These are the heads. Embroidered an X for their eyes.

Perfect material to hang the sheep on the wooden ring. Found this twine in the Wrap Shop in Rockwell. Thanks, Dants, for helping me find this one! It’s perfect.

Had to hang the bodies first before attaching the heads. Sounds so morbid. Haha!


Attached some extra yarn above their heads for some sheep bangs. Sheep bangs! Sheep bangs! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sorry, some of my friends are camera shy ๐Ÿ™‚


I was supposed to put a black sheep in the mix. There’s always a black sheep in the family. Haha! But my friend requested for a blue sheep instead ๐Ÿ™‚ Hi Blue!


Finally, after weeks of crocheting and assembling, they’re finally ready to meet their new owner! ๐Ÿ™‚


I was so bothered by what Dante said regarding the “X” eyes of the sheep. That in cartoons, it means they’re dead. ย LOL. Bought some wooden buttons for the eyes right away! I don’t want to give dead sheep!


Now they’re wide-eyed and even cuter. Thanks, Dants! ๐Ÿ™‚ (Dante, my fiercest judge. LOL!)

To Margaux, my friend, I hope your son enjoys the company of my little fluffy buddies and will help him sleep more soundly at night ๐Ÿ™‚

Sweet dreams ๐Ÿ™‚
