felted lambs for baby mobile

20 Oct

I was commissioned by my friend Laura to felt 5 little lambs so she and her husband could turn them into a mobile for the little girl they are expecting. She wanted 4 white and 1 black.

Here is the core wool shape. If you are having a hard time with your core or shaping of animals I recommend getting the book Little Felted Animals. It really helps you get perspective on making good cores.

The whole family together! I really like how each one has there own expressions and hairdos! I used cotswold locks form LaTeaDaDesigns. For the eyes I used glass beads with wire ends and for extra support I used fast grab glue.

A close up of little black’s face. I used a different darker pink of the cheeks of this one. The light pink looked weird on the black. The locks were dyed black and the believe the black was purple based. There are some cool tiny purple pockets that come out.

I hope Laura enjoys these little guys as much as I do. My boyfriend’s mom can’t get over how cute they are. She even told me she tried counted sheep the other night to fall asleep and imagined these little ones! Check out Laura’s blog about her pregnancy and she what her journeys all about : young, broke, and pregnant.

Thanks!
