The special feature of this sheep from the hippy era is the fine contour drawn in one go. Of course, I have made every effort to implement this feature also true to the original.
Through discreetly placed color details, this motif is excellent to find its place on light fabrics and relatively quickly embroiderable. Please pay attention to the choice of your fabric color, because on too dark selected fabrics, the sheep comes across not so effective.
You can find more sizes of this design on elfenidee.com.
If you would like to embroider this design on towelling, you will find a separate file in the folder for this purpose. Since the fine contour lines would sink into a high pile fabric, a separate file with a backing grid is included specifically for this purpose. I recommend to embroider this grid (2nd embroidery step in the corresponding file) exactly in the color of the fabric – also the bobbin thread in fabric color! This way you will get a beautiful embroidery result without the details sinking into the fabric.
This lovely sheep is based on a watercolor painting by Sabine Weuthen from Smart-Thread.com. With the kind permission of Sabine I was allowed to process the painting into an embroidery motif and offer it here.
