Step-by-step instructions

You’ll start this fun lamb project by printing out the lamb paper doll template.

Once you have all the pieces cut, lay them out to make sure you have everything.

Poke a hole through the sheep’s leg. It will help you put everything together later.

Poke two holes (white dots) through the sheep’s body.

Use scissors to make the holes larger.

Take the split pins and put the sheep together.

Work on the sheep one leg at a time.

As you can see, the hind legs are movable.

Complete both pairs of legs as shown.

Take the red yarn and thread it through the holes. If you don’t have red, you can use any color you have on hand.

Tie the thread at the end.

Pull the small piece of thread to move the sheep around.
