  • Woolly Lamb and Her Ewe in a field of Forget-me-Nots and Field Flowers

    Sheep Bags


    Delivery Method:

    I designed the sheep bag after being asked for a long time to design one. Choose from the Wooly Ewe and the Wooly Lamb - these two sizes are created by changing from a double-strand to single-strand of yarn and going down in needle size.

    These two sheep are given their personality by the way you embroider on their faces, so use your favorite sheep as your model. Or, as I did, think of a celebrity sheep (Lamb chop) or the faces of your favorite illustrator (Maurice Sendak) to inspire your embroidery.
