Materials:
Cotton yarn. Colours: pink, a small amount of white, black and grey. 
To make a brooch choose thinner yarn. To make a beautiful statuette choose thicker yarn.

- Hollow fibre
- A piece of wire approx. 1,0 mm thick and 30-35cm long
- A sewing needle
- Transparent glue
- For the eyes - a small bead 
- Seed beads for decoration (colour of your choice, I used mint green colour)
- Sewing threads to match the colour of the seed beads
