Additional Process

Optionally, you can attach a body to the pig. Here, any option is possible. You can draw the body on a piece of paper and glue the head to it – you will get an amusing applique work. Or the head can be attached to the pre-made accordion, as exemplified by a pig made of accordion paper. Or you can make the whole origami pig at once.

Or use this simple pattern – optionally, you can draw something like this yourself and cut it out.
