Very special hand crafted sheep


Late last year, I decided on a bespoke gift for both girls. They both  have the Freedom of London & one of the quirky privileges is that they are allowed to drive their sheep over London Bridge once a year at a special ceremony.

I wanted to mark it with a bespoke gift & after much searching, I came across the beautiful work of
Ruth at Needle Felted Wishes. She uses a variety of wool & fabrics to create stunning, bespoke masterpieces.

We exchanged messages so she could suggest styles & ideas, then she set about making the gifts.

Part of the daughters duties, include very elegant balls in glittering halls in London, & then the  quirky activity of being able to drive your sheep through London - Ruth made the little sheep with their alpaca ears & mohair topknots, as well as two beautiful & elegantly dressed sheep.

The box arrived on a cold, snowy day but opening the box was a joy ...

One of the sets with her lovely pink dress - the attention to detail - all hand stitched - is just so lovely.

Don't you love this ones hair & elegant ball gown?

Look at the tiny shoes peeking through ...

I love their mohair & alpaca hair & details ...

The pretty sequins on the other dress ...

Look at her lovely legs & shoes ...

The two little sheep together - such expressions on their hand sewn faces ...

A beautiful bespoke gift from the very talented Ruth - perfect gifts to mark their achievement
