Here it is, I am adding another animal to my wool felting craft tutorial, please welcome Ramie the sheep. After the Lion, Owl, Carrot, Little Birds and Easter Eggs (wet felting method), this is the 6th addition to the needle felted wool animal I have made. Hooray!!!!
Ramie is a needle felted sheep, the size is about 6″ x 4″ x 5″ (H). He is a friendly and happy ram that comes from the famous Merino breed. He lives in the farm and needs to be shorn during summer. Ramie is very proud of his wool as he produces the finest and softest wool among the sheep. He knows that human needs his high quality wool which makes him a very happy sheep. Ramie is very pleased with his well-kept horns and his big brown nose, these give him a distinguished look that no other sheep has.
The sheep is constructed using rolled-up yarn balls as the sculptural core. The sculptural core is then wrapped by the wool followed by needle felt. It saves up a lot of wool with this method. You may add jingle bell in the body to make it rattle if you are making it as a toy for kid.
I will be adding more needle felting animals in near future, please stay tuned!!!!
