Whimsical Woven Folkloric Sheep

After I designed the goofy dancing sheep LINK, I thought…. hmmm…. I really should weave some sheep with their feet on the ground.

So, I started the way I always do…. by sketching and noodling and asking myself: ‘What if?’  and, ‘Could I do this or that?’

And, after many iterations (aka: I tried this that and the other and they didn’t work) , I am delighted that I have finally

completed the design and made the  pattern for Fleur:

and Bellissa:

Fleur and Bellissa are whimsical Folkloric inspired sheep to weave on weaving sticks or a peg loom.

The finished size is determined by the diameter of weaving stick that you choose and the thickness of the yarn.

I want to weave a technicolor flock with every permutation and combination of colors and textures and hand spun yarns and art yarns and rovings, and, and, and…

They make me laugh, which is always a good thing.

Here’s the LINK to the pattern in my etsy shop:


The end. LOL.   Well, Bellissa’s ‘end’  🙂   Happy weaving!

  1. It can be a good thing when the end is in sight, especially when it is as delightful a sit-upon as Belissa’s!

    Ms. Noreen, you have truly outdone yourself with these delightful, sweet, silly, shaggy sheep!!! I love them! I think they are my favorite things I have seen you make, not that I have seen everything yet. There is just something sweet, happy and innocent about them. I can use a dose of that. I would love to get a pattern and try to make some like that for a wall hanging for my grandbaby’s room… or my little girl’s… or…MINE! Yes, My room. I can use some smiles in my room. :)) Thank you for sharing, Noreen.
