- nylon tights;
- filler - synthetic winterizer;

Master class - pig from a nylon stocking for the New Year
To make such a toy is quite simple, if you follow the recommendations of the master class. I propose to begin work.
- It is necessary to take two nylon socks and put on one on the other.
- Next, we fill our workpiece with filler. In the middle we insert a piece of synthetic winterizer rolled up by a roller, which will keep the shape of our workpiece.
- After that we tie a thread.
- We take strong threads and bandage the body in half.
- Next, we proceed to the formation of the animal’s mouth, for this we need a needle, with which we pierce the capron twice.
- We make the nose of the pig. To do this, we need a small piece of kapron, which we fill with filler. And we make two nostrils. You can use two needles or beads.
- Sew a patch to the head. You can use superglue.
- After that, we start making eyes. First you need to accurately measure their location so that both eyes are at the same distance. We stick a needle in the neck and drag it to the face so as not to make extra nodules in a conspicuous place.
- Pull the thread a little. We begin to sew the eyes of the piglet. You can use the most ordinary black beads or purchased eyes for toys. You can buy them at any needlework store. After that, we again skip the thread to the very neck, fasten and cut it.
- Next, we begin to make ears. For this we need a piece of nylon tights. Cut the blanks of the ears and sew them. You can sew on a sewing machine, or sew it by hand. It does not play a big role, it’s just that it’s possible to make a toy on a typewriter much faster.
- We stuff each ear for the piglet with filler and sew it from the bottom.
- After that, we begin to sew on the ears for our animal. Smear the front of the eye with glue and apply it, hold until completely dry. We do the same with the second ear.
- And we begin to make the legs of a pig. Make marks in advance.
- We make the legs of kapron and sew them to our guinea pig.
- After that, we begin to make pens of the animal. To do this, take two pieces of filler and make rollers out of it. It is necessary that the foot is slightly elongated. We make two blanks. We outline where the pens should be sewn.
- Indent from the neck about one cm and begin to sew the first handle. Then we sew the second. We fix the threads and cut.
- After that we make the navel of our piglet. We fix the threads.
- Here our little animal is almost ready, now you can embellish it a little. To make up our piglet, we need red blush.
- Let's draw pink cheeks and a nose for our pig.
- In the center of the ears, slightly decorate with dark shadows or a pencil. Make up eyebrows, and draw cilia. For the mouth, you can use either red shadows or a felt-tip pen, because lipstick can be smeared and ruin the toy. And you can also use colored markers or nail polishes to make up our piglet.
But you can also slightly decorate the legs and handles, so that the animal is even more realistic.

You can use the Internet or compose yourself. After that, we twist our work into a tube. We fix it all with a beautiful red ribbon. Then we attach to the hoof of the animal.
