Today I finished up several HAND-felted sheepy pillows ~ or ~ sachets? Are they sachets when you fill them full of sweet herbal goodness from the garden…regardless of their size??
I’ve been wet felting since I have owned my sheep. I never get tired ~ or bored ~ making sweet sheep!
Love those sheep!
I haven’t ’embellished’ them much…but, you could add buttons, tassels, flowers, bobble & what-nots. I did add a rusty bell & heart…
The fabric was made by wet felting my wool roving. Think of it as my canvas…which I then needle felted my sheep…again using my wool roving as my media or ‘paint’. I love texture; I also used mohair yarn.
I used recycled wool fabric for the back of the pillows.
I describe the wet felting process in other posts, but I also put together a little ‘how-to’ booklet on the subject.
I hope my sheepies find their way to new homes… and they smell good!
I LOVE you sheepie sachets/pillows! I want to learn to felt this winter, as I have the first wool from my sheep this year! Is your book available for purchase?
Thanks! What breed sheep do you have? Yes, my booklet is available…either direct or in my etsy shop…there’s a link on my sidebar. Happy fiber’n!
We have Shetlands too! 🙂 I am off to purchase the booklet! Check out my blog gotgoats.com
Hi Jenn! Your blog is awesome. Love your sheepies & goats too!!!
