Updated Dec. 2018: Here is the new website from Juniper Moon to purchase the wood cutout animals: https://juniper-moon-yarns.myshopify.com/collections/frontpage

JuniperMoonFarm is hosting a fundraiser by selling the wooden cut-out animals on her Etsy shop (linked below). A portion from each sale of the wooden animals is being donated to Heifer International. The cut-outs can be ordered until December 15th, 2015 (of course check with Susan Gibbs JuniperMoonFarm for any new or different information on this sale). Their goal is to raise $5,000 for the organization through this fundraiser.

To make your own adorable sweater-ed flock the first thing you’ll need to do is order your wooden animal cut-outs, and the stands if you’d like, from Juniper Moon Farm. The stands are optional, of course, but I love them and they give you more options for displaying the animals. The animals would make great ornaments with an added hook or string or they could be used as little gift-toppers or stocking stuffers as well.

Go to the Juniper Moon Sheep Shop on Etsy to purchase the cut-outs!

Click here for the Juniper Moon Website and blog! The blog shows different ideas for decorating the animals, which is fun to see.

The following patterns will remain only as a blog post right here on the blog and they will remain free. Please feel free to copy the text and paste it into your word program to create your own documents or pdfs if you’d prefer that.

The animal cut-outs and stands were gifted to me from Susan of Juniper Moon Farm. I created the tiny sweater patterns to boost interest and to hopefully bring more attention to Susan’s creative fundraising idea. Thank you, Susan Gibbs, for including me in your amazing and creative idea to support Heifer International’s fantastic charity work all over the world.
