Come and bleat with Shaun The Sheep
He is a component in another project I am making with a Spring theme and I decided to use Shaun the Sheep as a "window decoration" kind of like the critters you see suction cupped to car windows. Shaun is almost entirely made out of upcycled items - the cotton is from an asprin bottle, the black fabric is scraps and the googly eyes were ones that had come off of other projects - just the fabric paint for the nostril and the hot glue from the glue I used to glue him together was not.

  • How to make a lamb / sheep plushie. Shaun The Sheep - Step 1
    Step 1

    To make him, I looked at pictures at his website http://www.shaunthesheep.com/make/ as inspiration and winged it from there (If you have a printer you could probably download his picture and use that as template - I don't own a printer and anything I want to print out I go to the library and pay 5 cents a sheet to print, so I rarely do print anything off - beside that, it was 4 in the morning and the library was closed).
    The face shape is sort of oval with the bottom being wee bit wider than the top.
    The legs are made out of strip of fabric about 1/2 inch wide and about 5 inches long, then folded in half and knots tied at about an inch in between, then cut off below he knot - the knot makes his feet and the skinny part is his legs.
    His ears are from two strips of fabric about 1/4 inch wide and an inch long and rounded and the outer edged, then tapered in slightly on each side going towards his head.

    Step 2

    Cut about a 1/2 inch of the cotton off and use the glue gun to attach it to the back of his head. Glue the ears on each side below the fluff of cotton. Glue the eyes onto his face, then two dots of fabric paint to make his nostrils.

    Step 3

    Fluff up the cotton body. To make the tail, take a bit of the cotton and twist is several times. Glue the head to the body, then legs, with the hot glue gun.
    Here he is finished.
