do not stuff the toy too hard, spread the filling evenly so that the surface of a toy will have a smooth surface, after we bake the toy
Sew in the opening and attach a thread to the head. We will need this thread to fix a sheep in the oven

One interesting thing about this toy is that we are going to dye it with coffee and then bake it in an oven to fix the color. Make the coffye dye - mix half a tablespoon of instant coffee, half a teaspoon of cocoa and 70 ml of boiling water. Stir and add half a tea spoon of cinnamon, and vanilla sugar, half a tanle spoon of PVA glue. The mix will make just enough to paint about 15 toys.  mix it thouroughly and tstart painting out toy. Using a toothbrush apply the dye, avoinding soaking the filling.

tie in the future sheep figure to the oven's net, and dry it for about 10-15 minutes on a low heat. Make sure that the toy has dried completely
The dry toy has very hard surface and it s very easy to hand paint over it
