Thank you @wittychild, @megwell, @MegAskunk, @Bunny1kenobi, @kittykill, & @endymion!!! :mouse: :sheep: SqueakBahBah!

The cart came before the mouse! The wheels are needle felted. I used craft sticks to create the basic shape and support for the axel which is just a twig. There are twigs glued under the craft stick frame to form a bottom for the cart and then twigs used to create the handle and sides.
It was when I was trying out having the mouse pushing the cart that it occurred to me that it looked like a lawn mower. The sheep was the obvious addition!

Don’t get sheered by other lawn services!!
Use Peaty Sod for the very best in Grounds Sheeping!

I love the fantasy of this! Very whimsical! Goes straight to the heart of that little kid inside us!

Thank you!! :mouse:

I’m enjoying the process of making these characters. They all go through a sort of evolution. Sometimes I may have an idea in my head when I start one and that idea changes as I work on them, and other times I (like the one in progress now) I have no idea who they want to be yet. They haven’t “spoken to me” yet.

I think I will have to name this sheep Gravely, after the best mower I ever owned. Wish I had something like it today!

Thank you @kittykill & @grenouille78!!!

Always makes my day when one of my creatures is featured! :mouse:

I’ve always made creatures happy. I know others do, but I find no appeal to sad face creatures. “Squeak!!”
