All parts are knitted flat and sewn up at the end.
Finished size: 40cm long, 12-13cm tall with the animals sitting in the carriages, each carriage is 12cm long.
The carriages and wheels are reinforced with non-corrugated cardboard material. A cereal box can be also used for this purpose. Additionally, the wooden skewers provide support to the front carriage’s roof. Dolls and animals are stuffed with toy stuffing and the eyes are created by sewing black beads. Alternatively, one can use black yarn to create French knots for the eyes.
The wheels are secured and do not turn.
The crochet hook is to make chains and pick up stitches. It does not need to be precisely 3mm.
