Nativity 3: Mom Feature

5:00 AM

Nativity from patterns by Sue Cottrell, currently unavailable unfortunately!
The shepherds were originally just the two men, but my mom made her own little shepherd boy.

She made one huge sheep, then the two little ones. 
The men shepherds have hand sewn noses, and the shepherd crook was copper tubing my mom bought in the plumbing section from Home Depot and she cut pieces and bent them herself.

I'm glad she added the little shepherd boy to the group.
