Man Made Sheep

MG 1/100 Gundam shown for scale.
My fiance, being asian, is a bit crazy for stuffed animals. She's always insisting that I provide her with a stuffed zoo. Being the ambitious DIYer that I am I decided to try my hand at making one myself. Not really adept at sewing it'd still be a bit more special than a store bought animal made in mainland China by a 5 year old with no toys of her own.

Armed some sheep themed flannel laying around, and my great grandmother's Singer sewing machine collecting dust. After a few days, and 4 horribly disfigured cloth sheep later I came up with this; a sheep in sheep's clothing. It needs a set of eyes, a nose, and a stomach staple, but I think it will suffice. (Gundam not actual size)

  6. That's pretty darn spectacular, friend. I've never been an arts and crafts kinda guy myself, which I've always regretted. If you make any more fancy animals, make sure to post 'em!
    Maybe you could make a hog? I'm kinda partial to hogs.
