On paper, draw the silhouette of the animal and cut out the figure. Transfer the pattern to the felt, folded in half, pin with pins. Make two identical pieces of fabric. For each blank, sew up the eyes - beads, embroider the mouth, nose, hooves. Cut the tape into pieces, burn it with a cigarette lighter.
