Susan Gibbs and her husband have created a wonderful phenomenon for good! Juniper Moon Farm is laser-cutting these delightful little sheep ornaments to dress up in fibery love and the proceeds go to Heifer International, one of our all-time favorite organizations. The Sheep Stash can be used as toys, ornaments or all kinds of decorations!

These are my sheep ornaments; I had so much fun with them! For the mama sheep, I made tiny pom-poms on my finger (I’m calling them finger-poms) and glued them to the wood cutout. For the little sheep below, I covered the area I wanted to add yarn to with glue and then carefully wound from the outside in. You can purchase the handmade sheep and alpacas on Juniper Moon’s Facebook page.

Check out the page for all kinds of ideas on how to personalize your sheep; Susan B. Anderson is even offering tiny sweater patterns for free!

If you’d like to make some finger-poms, here’s a quick tutorial (please forgive my blue fingers; it was a big day in the dye studio. And I’m going to get a manicure today, really!)

Please check out all of the cool ideas and I hope you’ll support the initiative by getting your very own Sheep Stash!

Don’t know if this is the right place to leave the “secret squirrel” phrase- “The ides of March”
