It's easy to make a lamb like this, you can even do this interesting work with your child. So, let's start.
You need: scissors, thread, needle, linen, a little piece of coloured fabric, hollofayber, or any other stuffing, acrylic black paint, wooden buttons, red mouline and, of course, a sewing machine.
Transfer the pattern to paper and cut it out.
Fold the pieces of the material with their right sides to each other. Transfer the pattern to the fabric. Cut out the ears and tails according to the same pattern. Stitch the details on the machine, leaving a hole in the bottom for turning the blank outside in and stuffing it.
Cut out the patterns, retreating 5 mm from the edge.
Fold and stitch the corners at the bottom of the body. This is necessary for making the "bottom" of the sheep.
Cut the corners, leaving 5 mm from the seam.
Turn the ears and tail outside in and tuck in the edge.
Turn the body outside in helping with a wooden stick. Iron the details. Stuff the body with filler.
Sew up the hole with a concealed stitch.
