Handmade toys are becoming more and more popular, as they are made from environmentally friendly objects and are absolutely unique in their performance, since the hand of each master is individual, which is why the toy is exclusive. For example, even take an animal whose year will come to us next year, it will be the year 2015, the year of the Goat and Sheep according to the eastern calendar. Of course, we begin preparations for the winter New Year and Christmas holidays in advance and begin to choose gifts for loved ones in advance. It is generally customary to give all sorts of trinkets with an animal for the New Year, the year of which we are expecting. In our case, gifts in the form of statuettes, piggy banks, candles, balls with a sheep and a goat are suitable. This is a required attribute for the 2015 meeting. This master class will help us to sew a soft and fluffy sheep from felt, which can be presented to both a child and an adult in the form of a Christmas tree toy.
To sew a sheep, we need the following:
• Felt light pink, bright pink, beige and brown;
• A pair of small peepholes for toys;
• Satin narrow ribbon of red satin in white polka dots;
• A small golden bell;
• Sintepuh about 5-6 grams;
• Brown threads;
• Black small beads;
• Shiny half beads;
• Lighter, handle, scissors;
• Sheet for drawing a template;
• White thread and needle;
• Glue gun.
To begin with, the first step, of course, is to draw a sketch template for our sheep, according to which we will cut out the pattern of the sheep. The pattern can be copied from the finished photograph (it is the size of a sheep with a half palm), the second option is to find the finished pattern on the Internet, but again, it all depends on the desired size of the animal. In our case, a sheep is as small as half a palm; therefore, a pattern can be copied, printed, and cut out. We cut out according to one example, and already on the sheets we measure out the required number of blanks.
The body, tuft and large cheeks are cut in two copies with a light pink felt. From the bright pink felt we cut out two sketches of small ears and small cheeks. Four legs are cut from brown felt, and from beige two circles on the face and two figures of the tail.
We take two circles, put them together, take a white thread with a needle and sew these two circles with a spliced seam in a circle, approximately when 2/3 were sewn, we begin to insert the synthetic fiber into the bundles inside. Sew the circle with the filler completely.
We do the same with the rest of the parts, fill and stitch the body, tail, legs. We are not afraid if the elements of the lamb are curly, everything is perfectly sewn with the help of a fillet seam. We put the ears on top of each other, turn them down and fasten with a thread, level them and get a full-fledged ear of a lamb.
Now with brown threads we make a loop of the mouth and nose, at the top of the nose we glue the sulfur bead. Eyes to the face with a glue gun. From the ribbon we make a loop and a bow, sew a bell to the bow. We collect all the details to make a sheep, we glue them with a gun. It turns out a cute, soft and tender handmade sheep. Thank you and thank you all!
