How to fold up to become a kangaroo.
Fold the last row back until row 6 follows and lay across to create the back of the kangaroo. Row 7 can be folded on top of row 4 to give the look of extra muscle. Row 4 becomes the back leg, and row5 becomes the tail. Row 1 is the ears, and row 2 is the face. Row 3 is the front legs.
Use sewing needle and stitch the pieces in place. Use thread and needle to fold the ear sideways in half to give more the appearance of an ear. Do the same with the face to bend the face to be more kangarooish :D
VOLA! You have made a Fold Me Up Kangaroo.
