Counting Sheep: The Creation of Sophie the Sheep

Sophie the Sheep is a pretty special sheep: She's a baaa-utiful cuddle buddy from the tip of her squishy nose to her fluffy tail (and what a fluffy tail!).

But that's not what makes Sophie really special.

Sophie started out an original sketch by Carrolyn, Merchandising & Visual Coordinator at Purdys Chocolatier. Carrolyn chose the colour of Sophie's velvety skin and soft wool, the prettiest button eyes and exactly where each stitch that makes up Sophie's nose and eyelashes had to be placed.

We think Sophie's sketch is not so much a sketch as it is a portrait—doesn't it look just like Sophie posed for a picture?

Sophie also stars on the cover of our vintage-inspired Waiting for Spring Tin.
