baa

This little one was from a free pattern over at turkey feathers. She was a vacation project two summers ago in South Carolina. Hoping to get stuff done before our trip to China, I stitched a lot of handwork projects then. Once Trixie came home, there'd be precious little time for all this hand sewing - at least for a bit.

The flowers are some vintage goodies I found thrifting.

The fabric is 100% wool felt that I washed and dried before cutting the pattern out. It shrinks up considerably, but also gives it a thick, nubby texture. The details are all done with embroidery floss.



I cropped out the size marker, but she's about the height of a soup can.
