Little Bo Peep

LITTLE BO PEEP
HAS LOST HER SHEEP
AND DOESN'T KNOW WHERE TO FIND THEM

LEAVE THEM ALONE
AND THEY WILL COME HOME
WAGGING THEIR TAILS BEHIND THEM.


My version of Little Bo Peep.
Poor little Bo Peep is so worried and beside herself that she has lost her sheep that she hasn't even noticed that they have snuck up under her petticoats to hide.  Silly Sheep... what a handful they are!  Always playing tricks on her and making her a nervous wreck. Baaa'd little sheep...but it is all in good fun!!  ;-)

These little sheep were all made by needlefelting with wool roving.


Handsculpted with Fimo polymer clay, handmade eyes with soft mohair wig.

Outfit made from scratch with silk ribbons, teenie tiny handmade buttons and a darling pansy design for her dress.
I especially enjoyed working on her bonnet.
I have always loved bonnets and have a large selection of old baby bonnets I have collected over the years.
I just can't resist them!
This one was just Too Fun to create!!!

Hope you like her!

SHE IS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE IN MY ETSY SHOP

 
Thanks for stopping by!!!  ;-)

Hi Penny!
Thank you! ;-)
Yes...I am running behind but I do have a large piece in the works right now. She will be a large princess 20" so she is taking much more time. I hope to have her done soon. Always a treat to hear from you Penny. ;-)
