1 Assemble your materials!

Gather your 3Doodler, plastic, the bat stencil, and a DoodlePad.

2 Craft The Body Sections

Using the stencil Doodle the two sides of the body.

3 Combine the pieces to make a 3D body

Attach both halves of the body with a line of filament, and then use your pen to wrap plastic around them to complete the three dimensional body.

4 Trace Out The Wings

Using the stencil again to Doodle the wings. Start by tracing the perimeter and then take your pen and fill in each section until it looks like a real wing.

5 Add Some Details

Trace out two little triangles and fill them in. We will attach them to the body and use them as ears.

6 Put It All Together

Using the "welding technique"attach the wings to the body of the bat. Put a line of plastic on the body and a line on the wing and press them together. Do the same thing to the ears firmly attaching them to the body.

The final step is to draw on eyes. So using another color plastic add circles where the eyes should be on the body.

Now your Doodle bat should look pretty real!
