Gift for a girl - Sheep, felt bag
The Year of the Blue Wood Goat / Sheep will depend entirely on the mood of the owner of the year. Departing a little from the postulates, we will make a warm and practical gift - a handbag in the form of a shy white sheep, which your beloved girl will like.
For work, you should prepare:
A strong desire to please the little man;
- Positive attitude towards success;
- Initial skills in cutting and sewing;
- Good music or "Fashionable Sentence" on TV;
- Felt fabric of two types - thick white and thin pink, black and white;
- Threads of matching colors;
- Filler (holofiber, etc.)
- Two needles (thick and thin) with a wide eye;
- Paper and pencil to create a pattern;
- Two hours of free time.
The dimensions of the finished product depend on your desire and the size of a piece of thick felt that is in stock. Even a beginner can draw approximate contours, try to observe the proportions. The figure shows the number of parts required.
Transfer the details of the pattern to the material and cut out 2 pieces for the body and a strip for the handle from thick felt, the length of which must be determined independently. From thin white felt, cut out two parts of the bangs (in the form of a cloud), from pink - ears, muzzle and legs, from black - hoof.
Sew the legs, to do this, fold two long pink parts and sew along the long side on both sides with a column or a buttonhole stitch, similarly sew the hoof and "insert" the leg, secure.
Perform the rest of the legs in the same way.
Sew the body of the Sheep with a thick needle, at the same time sew on the legs and the handle. For comfortable wearing, sew the handle firmly on one side, turn it once to form a flat loop and sew on the second edge. Sew on the handle wide enough so that you can put something voluminous in your purse.
Assembling the bag
Our Sheep is a shy girl, so the embroidery of eyes and mouth will not take long. If embroidery is your strong point, then the Sheep can coquettishly gaze with large eyes with cilia.
Fold the embroidered muzzle with the second part, insert the ears, having previously folded them in a half-cone and sew the muzzle to the forehead.
The filler is not very tight, but enough for the muzzle to keep its shape.
Sew the bangs from two parts, fill with filler and carefully connect to the muzzle.
To decorate the Sheep, you need a thin felt of a bright color, from which you need to cut a wavy circle and cut it in a spiral.
Twist the rose tightly, starting at the thin end of the circle, so that its base serves as the bottom of the flower. So that the rose does not come apart, sew the bottom or glue it with PVA glue.
Decorate the Sheep bangs with a flower, making a neat blind stitch.
Sew the muzzle to the body, put a small surprise in your purse and you can send it under the tree.
