Sheep egg cozies - Free Pattern

Sheep egg cozies - Free Pattern



Sheep I made some time ago for my Mom ( She collects sheep of any sorts and kinds). They are wonderful to decorate your table for Easter or basically any other occasion You serve eggs. They look really wonderful, a bit silly maybe but mostly very very cute.
When I was making pictures for this pattern I had this fantasy about making the whole flock of white sheep with only one black in the middle. What a wonderful table decoration that woud be. Anyway I recommend You to make at least two from the pattern below.

Special thanks to +Lương Bình who motivated me to write this pattern :)
