Sheep-ish

This weeks sewing project is pretty different. I’ve put a pause on the ‘fashion’ side of things for today and am getting a little cuddlier.

I really like making plushies. Stuffed animals have a satisfying result and with two nephews, I’ve got plenty of excuses to come up with little creations. I’ve had a lot of fun with this in the past:

I also really like Pinterest and the number of ideas there for the taking, like this seemingly simple and adorable idea for some little sock sheep.

I had some old fuzzy socks laying around to make a prototype with and immediately got to work.

This next part is a great example of something else I like. Pinterest fails:

What the hell happened?

So much has gone wrong here, both in the proportions and the poorly distributed stuffing.

I am pretty pleased with the embroidery work on the face. If nothing else, I can take pride in that.

But this sheep…

It looks so pathetic. Perfect addition to my stitcherydon’t file.
