The photo shows how our paper blank should look. Now take the fabric, folded in two layers, the front side inwards, circle the pattern with soap and cut out the basic shape of the body of the horse. Two identical parts are obtained. After cutting the sidewalls, you need to make a back. To do this, draw on paper a detail of two legs and part of the back (as shown in the photo) and cut out.We place the resulting pattern on the fold of the contrastfabric with a small pattern and outline it along the contour. As a result, you will have one more detail of the future toy. It remains to make ears from contrasting material. After these operations, you should get two main side parts of the horse's body, one "abdomen" and two ears. Now with the help of pins we collect all the parts in a single structure. Cut a long strip of fabric with a pattern and attach it with needles or pins to the two side details of the horse.
