Pattern. It is necessary to draw and then cut out two parts of the body and head from the tissue. Corpuscle. The figure shows the lines on which you want to sew details. A mark in two strips - sew halves together, mark in one strip - just sew parts of the part. Leave a small hole so that the workpiece can be turned and stuffed with suitable material. Both parts of the head are sewn, leaving a hole on top, the outer seam will well mask the beaded fur. On the preparation of the future sheep, already stuffed with sintepon or any other material, make marks - legs, tummy and hooves. They will need to be simply beaded. For the hoofs take the black beads. Spin and sides of calf, sew, alternating rowsbeaded fur and just rows of embroidery beads through one. Beaded fur perform as follows: sew 1 bead, put another 3 - 4 on the thread and stretch the thread through the third, second and first beads. The resulting design is fixed on a bead-based. Sew stripes. Head. On the stitched and stuffed head make notesthe middle of the ears, the peephole and the spout with the mouth. Beige mid-ears beaded with beads. The muzzle and outer sides of the ears are sewn with black beads. On the marks of the eyelet sew large beads. Wrap around in a spiral from the bottom up. The head of the head is sewn with beaded fur, without alternating rows with beads in one layer. Assembly. Sew the parts of the body and head.

- A line or thread and a needle for beads.
The sheep are made with two separate parts (head and corpuscle), then they are stitched together. Head. The work is done by weaving a cross on one working thread with white beads 10/0. It is necessary to make 5 crosses. Sixth cross-loop work. This is the first round of face. The line comes from the bottom bead of the cross. The second circle begins with the execution of a regular cross (string 3 beads). Then stretch the line through two peaks of the next two crosses. String 2 pcs. white beads. Cut the line through the lateral bead of the first cross, then again through the tops of 2 crosses of the first circle and the line goes out of the upper bead of the next cross. A cross was made from 5 beads. (Figure 5). Repeat points 4 and 5, shown in the figures, one more ordinary and one five-piece crosses. (Figure 6). Pass the fishing line into the last bead of the second circle and tighten all the extreme beads of the crosses. Then pass the fishing line to the free side of the side bead of the first circle. To weave two more crosses from beads 10/0 (theyshould be located on the side where the decrements were made - this is the head of the lamb from below and the attachment point to the calf) and four other crosses of beads 8/0. Figure 7. Draw a fishing line through the side bead of the first cross and weave it similarly to the second circle. Tighten the beads at the ends of the 6 crosses. Remove the line from the side of the face. In Figure 8, beads 8/0 are marked, where the ears (of beads 10/0) of another color should be weaved. The places where the eyelet is attached are marked. Ears. From the contrast beads. The line comes out of the bead 8/0, cut 2 beads 10/0 and pass the line through 1 bead 8/0 and 2 beads 10/0. This is indicated in Figure 9a. String 3 beads 10/0. Skip the line 2 and then 3 beads 10/0. String 2 beads 10/0 and thread the line as shown in figure 9 in. As a result, she must leave the bead 8/0. The same line to attach 2 black eyes 10/0 and weave symmetrically the second ear. Tail the lines to the bottom of the face. Do not cut. They will attach the head to the calf. Corpuscle. Weave beads 8/0. The first circle weave from 11 crosses. This is figure 10. The second circle of weaving is similar, again 11 crosses. Figure 11. On the 3rd lap, the deductions begin. Above the first two crosses of the 2nd circle we have to weave a cross, over the third one, 1, over the 4th and 5th, 1 more, and so on to the end. Figure 12. There are 7 crosses in the third round. Pull the bottom beads and stretch the line to the free side of the first circle. Bead put in a bubbly nest and weave a row of eight crosses to pull the work together. Figure 13. To stretch the line in the last row. Weave it, alternating 4 beads 8/0 and 4 black beads 10/0. Pass the line to the top and make the tail between the 2nd and 2nd circle the same as the ears. Assembly. Sew the head to the calf, fasten the line and hide the tails. For weaving such sheep, you can take wooden beads of larger diameter or a china instead of beads 8/0. Lambs are more curly.
