Bring two curved lines down on either side.
Add “loops” to the bottom of the lines for the arms.
And then add two marks to each for the paws.

Bring two curved lines down from the bottom, and join these at the bottom with another curve to create the pouch.
Next, bring two lines down from the bottom of the paw, and take these out and down.
