3. To make the mouth on the place of the nose cut out the triangle 6 cm long. Make two incisions for the ears. Cut off the slice 1 cm in diameter from the narrow part. Cut off the fourth part, the rest will be used for the nose.

Cut 2 pieces about 3 cm long in the form of the ears. Cut out the little tail in the form of a hook.

Make the legs. For this cut the cylindrical carrot piece 3 cm long on 4 equal parts. Round off on the inner side. To make the legs like pig's, in the center of the legs down cut off the triangles.
