From the pattern: The Christmas crib features all the figures in the Nativity, which can be displayed and enjoyed every year. The standing figures are made in the same basic way, beginning with a thin tapered body shape which has a circular cardboard base. The outer garments, sleeves etc are then added to the basic shape. Many of these items are the same on several figures and basic instructions for these are given after the instructions for the basic figure. Mary is a seated figure, requiring a separate set of instructions. You should begin by referring to the instructions for the figure you are about to make.
