Hello Instructables!  This is my entry for the Lion Brand Yarn Architecture Contest.  It is a Volkswaegen Cabriolet made from a cardboard base and covered in yarn.  If you are doing this craft with children you should either do the glueing for them, or you should skip that step and just paint the cardboard or colour it in markers.  Hot Glue is used in this craft, so please! avoid burning yourself during this instructable.

Step 1: Materials

To create your very own miniature, soft, yarn covered replica of a volkswagon cabriolet, you will need:

-Yarn (Approximately 3 colours)
-A Hot Glue Gun (AND GLUE, silly goose...)
-A Cereal Box or a tree, whichever method of attaining cardboard is easier for you
-A Corker ( is sort of like a miniature circular loom, it weaves the thread to make a larger rope, I will not go over how to use one of these, you can find instructions somewhere else)
-Something with a straight edge, a ruler preferably
-A Pen or Pencil
-If you wish, you may also use markers or paint

which vw should this resemble?<br>If cabriolet, does top open?
<p>It was meant to resemble a VW Cabriolet. No, the top doesn't open, that would definitely be an interesting addition to the project though!</p>
