It's been rainy and dreary here since Friday. I was hoping to get some garden work done, but instead it was a work-inside-weekend.
I made this little sheep pillow, from a Purl Bee pattern. I've stagnated a little bit with my sewing, so this quick, satisfying project was the perfect thing to get me back in the saddle. As soon as I saw him online, I knew that I had to make a little sheepie of my very own. The pattern calls for wool felt, but that was just out of my price range. I ended up using an "eco-felt" made from recycled plastic bottles, which was $20/yd. cheaper ($4.99 as opposed to $24.99). I would have loved to use the natural fiber, but I thought this was a project that I could compromise on.
I think he'll get to live in my sewing room where he can inspire me.
