Fluffy Sheep



pompom Shaun the sheep


There's something ironic about making a sheep from wool, but it does have a certain obvious ring about it. This FREE download includes the template for the wool rings you’ll need to make your pompom sheep and special image printouts (ready to be cut out) for the head and legs (lower down on this page). Don't worry if you don't have white or cream coloured wool, pompom sheep come in all the colours of the rainbow.
. . . You could make a whole farm of sheep, just like Gromit’s friend Shaun and his gang, and what’s really cool about pompoms, is that you can really shear them (ok, trim them with scissors) to make them look as shorn as you want. Look what happened to our pompom sheep when we took our kitchen scissors to it! If you really want to make your pompom fluffy sheep look just like Shaun, before you stick the legs on your pompom sheep, have had a look at our latest advanced model of Shaun the Sheep. All you need is an old sock and a glue gun and your sheep will have a woolly jumper to keep him warm, just like Shaun’s.

pompom made from a plastic carrier bagAnd now you don't even need wool to make a pompom, so you can get going on this project right away! An orange sheep... I don't think so, but then plenty of plastic carrier bags come in white, and if you use a black bin liner (refuse sack) then you really could make the black sheep of the family. Yes, a great way to reuse those plastic grocery bags, is by using them to make your pompoms. If you tie off the pompom with more plastic bag, then you can still recycle the finished pompom as if it was a normal plastic bag. You can also use black, white or green dustbin liners, or sandwich bags, which come in a range of subtle colours. Plastic bag pompoms will work for any of the Funky Pompom projects on dadcando. To make them all you do is replace the wool steps with the plastic bag. To make it easier to thread, you might want to cut the bag into wide strips, but as long as you can thread the bag through the centre of the discs then it's ok. A plastic bag pompom has a glossy slippery finish that is much softer than you would imagine and is a good alternative to wool.
