Year of the Sheep

For an exchange with some English felt makers, with the subject " Year of the Sheep'.
I made this sheep from thread cuttings and some machine embroidery on a dryer cloth 

Voor een uitwisseling met een aantal engelse viltsters, met als thema jaar van het schaap, heb ik een schaap gevilt op een "droogtrommel doekje". 
Het schaap zelf bestaat uit wat restjes draad, en is verder met de naaimachine geborduurd.
