Hide and Sheep



Oh my gosh, you guys!  I had so much fun working on this project!  Susannah was totally coveting the math bean bags I made for Craft Hope so I decided to make her a set...this time with a bit more personality.  Sheep!  I was able to use leftover fleece from projects gone by, so I didn't have to buy anything.  I also used the same technique that I used for making the math bean bags (just a sheep shape instead of a square), so I felt like I knew what I was doing and most everything went off without a hitch.  The perfect project!




Look at those cute little ears!  Of course, Susannah was bewildered about their lack of eyes.  I don't exactly know my reason for skipping that organ...laziness or artistic inclination?  Either way - they've got no eyes (or any other facial features for that matter).

There's the whole herd!  Minus zero, actually.   I did make a zero sheep but he didn't fit nicely into my 3 x 3 grid so he's not pictured.  I'm calling them the Counting Sheep Bean Bags and I most definitely will have a tutorial for them - with a sheep template!!  It's HEREcoming very soon (it's half done already and will be completed in a few more nap times). 

By the way, Hide and Sheep is a game where one person hides the the sheep bean bags in a room and the other pretends to be Little Bo Peep and round up her herd.  Genius, I know.

  14. They are fab! Delilah coveted the beanbags I made for Craft Hope too and I need to make her a set of her own. I already cut squares but what a lovely idea to make them into sheep! I have to rethink my plan now. Very cool!

  16. Oh my goodness, these are so stinking cute!!! I LOVE them! Those ears are perfect. And I think they are just fine without eyes. I don't know why, but I think eyes would have made them not so ... graphic? Can't explain, but think they are great as they are!!!
    Can't wait for the tutorial. I will probably shamelessly use it to make something else but bean bags ... but I will let you know! :-)

  20. How cute is that... The only problem that I foresee is that my twins would use those "counting sheep" as rockets to throw to each others cribs. Maybe instead I should make counting rockets.
