These little guys are so super cute! One of my most popular patterns on Etsy! I worked for 6-10 hours on designing each of these little guys then another 4-6 hours each to pattern and test them. Now they come to you ready for you to make your own heirloom nativity set too! Written crochet pattern includes patterns for 2 different shepherds and for a larger and smaller sheep. Want a herd of sheep? Just make a few! Photos are included in a few places to clarify where to sew pieces together. Shepherds stand approximately 5.5" tall. Please see photo in hand for size reference. This is a great sized set! Each character is open at the bottom to enable it to stand or be used as a puppet. There is no better way to teach the story of Jesus' birth than through play! If you're ready to try taking your crochet to the next level - just do it! It's super fun!

I love to design crochet patterns! I'm a wife to a great hubby and Mom to two super fun kiddos. I've been designing kids toys and products for 5 years now and am having a blast. My kids and their friends love to input on my designs and are full of new ideas. I hope you'll love my patterns and look me up again soon to check out my latest!
