I wanted to share with you a pic of a quick n easy sheep I made from a car washing mitt. Yes, you heard me right, a "car washing mitt." But let me say first, before you grab one and start your project, machine wash and dry the mitts, LOL! That gets rid of all the lint and fuzzies from them plus prepares them for staining. And they look more like real sheep wool after being laundered. I soaked mine in coffee stain mix then let air dry. Just use your imagination for yours to make how ever you like. Stuff it nice and full, even the cuff, so you'll have a nice face there. I got these $2 car washing mitts at the local Family Dollar about 2 yr ago especially for this purpose and just now putting it into action. But I think it turned out nice n easy!
Plain laundered mitt:
My first sheep, (I have lots of mitts, lol!):
Mine's face is stitched with button eyes:
Sorry about the pics but still having fits with the camera. Hopefully I'll find what's causing it today. Hope this gives you some neat ideas of your own! As always, have fun crafting!
