Pink felt will serve as wool, lilac will serve as a muzzle, white will be used for the eye, and we will make hooves of black felt. You can find patterns, or you can make a pattern yourself. The body of a lamb is like a cloud that needs to be cut from the corresponding piece of material. Slightly elongated head with ears, three times smaller than the body, cut out of lilac felt. On a white background, draw an infinity sign depicting future eyes.
We put this sign on the animal’s head and sew the eyes - beads, piercing both materials. Embroider the mouth and nose with black thread. Glue the head to the body. Next, cut rectangles from lilac felt, and squares from black. Glue the legs with hooves, and then glue the parts to the body. So the original DIY craft is done!
