A Birthday Gift

 Mom's birthday has fallen on the same weekend as the Philadelphia show for the last two years. Last year, I was so behind that  I ended up shopping at the show for Mom's birthday present. I was determined to be better prepared this year. On a side note, I love wrapping minature presents because the small packages are the perfect way to use up scraps of nice ribbon.

I made this sheep following the now-defunct tutorial from Paizley Pawz. Basically, it started out as a plastic sheep, which I first painted, then covered in combed-out chunks of undyed yarn. I left the sheep clean, but Mom has given me the green light to add a bit of dirt to it's coat.
Mom liked the sheep so much that I'm now working on a little lamb to stand alongside!
