So I was on a crafty streak. I decided I’d finally give an origami dachshund a try. I found a set of instructions on the ever helpful pinterest that didn’t look totally impossible and printed them off. This is them:
Looks pretty straight forward, yes? I thought so. Until I actually looked at them with a flimsy square of paper in my hand….. Then they didn’t seem to make any sense at all! I could really have done with my sister being on hand for this one – she used to be able to make all sorts of weird and wonderful things out of origami. I battled my way through, I think correctly, until the last stage to make the head. It didn’t work at all. I could make the pocket fold ok but it didn’t make the right shape? I can’t figure it out. But this is what I ended up with:
I don’t think it looks massively like a dachshund. But then to be honest, I don’t think the one in the instructions looks much like a dachshund either! Certainly not like either of my two…. Will have to try again and see if I can crack the head properly. Origami – not a strong point of mine!!
