A Christmas banner design - with added sheep

Our Create group has started working on a banner to hang in the church over Christmas. We have a fun project going on at the moment where lots of people in the church have knitted sheep (there are 30) all from the same pattern. 24 sheep will be hidden around our town in the style of a treasure hunt and 6 will be in various churches. This is all happening around Christmas to encourage people to think about coming to church to celebrate Christmas.

I wanted to continue the sheep theme on our Christmas banner. This is the page in my sketchbook that I put together to show the members of the group what we are working towards. Using lots of squares of fabric to create the background is a great way to use up my fabric (I have quite a lot!).

The words on the actual banner will be in white not black.

I made the sheep using moulding paste and paint. The sheep on the finished banner will be made from felt pebbles.
