Cut a piece of fleece fabric 12” x 22”.
Fold the fabric lengthwise and glue long edges together.
With the pinking shears, cut the fleece from the folded side to about an inch away from the glued edge, creating 1” strips the length of the fabric.
Repeat steps 1-3 until there are 2 tan pieces, 1 ivory piece, and 1 brown piece.
Lay one of the tan pieces flat. Hot glue along the glued edge and lay the brown piece on top of it. Then hot glue along the glued edge of the brown piece and lay the ivory piece on top of it. Then, finally, hot glue along the sewn edge of the ivory piece, and lay the last tan piece on top of it, creating a stacked piece with all of the fringed pieces in the same direction.
Hot glue the headband into the inside of the fleece piece for stability.
Cut two lengths of tan ribbon, approximately 1’ each. Hot glue to the end of the tan piece of fleece on top of the mane. Use for tying.
Cut a piece of sandstone felt slightly larger than the size of the mask.
Glue the felt to the mask, and trim away any extra felt around the edges and eye holes.
Using the pattern templates, cut out the top face piece from the cashmere tan felt. Hot glue in place at the top of the forehead and down the nose.
Cut out the nose piece in the baby pink felt. Hot glue in place.
Cut out the face dots in cashmere tan and hot glue in place.
Cut out the ears in cashmere tan. Fold the ears along the bottom to create a wrinkle, and hot glue in place on the back of the mask.
Using pinking shears to cut the fringe will add texture to the mane, but the fringe can also be cut into strips with scissors.
