Shaun the Pillow Sheep


Tip Junkie handmade projects
Realizing that I really am running out of time to make gifts for the upcoming holiday season I wandered into my sewing room last night and got started on this soft and cuddly guy. We love watching Shaun the Sheep on Netflix, so I thought my D would like to have his own Shaun, especially since he has been asking for a "Pillow Pet" for ages. I free handed everything with the help of pictures from the Shaun the Sheep website. Obviously I added legs, 'cause whats a sheep without legs? I used snaps instead of velcro, the velcro on B's puppy seems to get caught on things too much.

Last year I made my B her puppy pillow, which is now a fixture in her bed.

To make B's pillow I used Twelve Crafts Til Christmas's Pillow Buddy tutorial. The fabric I used for both of these were the clearenced chenille type blankets from Walmart. The pillows are relatively easy projects and cheap considering I got the blankets for $5/each and there is plenty of fabric leftover for something else later.
