Stage 2. When the vest is ready, you can start decorating it. To do this, cut out peas from white paper. Diameter not less than 5-6 centimeters. They are painted over with green gouache.

Medal on the chest with the image of a pea pod. There is a picture for the medal on the Internet. It is printed on a color printer and glued onto thick cardboard. It is better to catch such a medal with thread on clothes.
- Pea pods are not only delicious peas, but also beautiful leaves. Green leaves can be glued to a hat or cape. It is better to make them from shreds of green dense fabric. Felt is good.
