Start making your own heirloom Christmas sheep ornaments! Techniques adapted from the early 1800’s, use wool strips cut to quarter inch and sew with a five inch shirring needle and thread to shape his body, and then another wool strip to do caterpillar shirring around to put a plaid coat on him. Then make a whimsical face with crystal beaded eyes and a big yarn tail!

No special skills required. Easy and fun to do. We will complete one in class and start another design.

Kit includes enough to make a few ornaments to get you started. Just bring along a pair of scissors and be inspired to make your own ewenique ornaments to enjoy for years to come.

NO homework, just join in for the fun!
