7 Animal Faces

Animal FacesThis is the cutest! Constructing this looks complicated but it's not that difficult. To make the face look more 3D, you simply have to cut a slit from the top of the head to the nose. After embroidering the snout details and punching holes for the eyes, you then overlap the slit, add an eyelet and a ring, and that's it. I bet your kids will snatch these up from your craft table right away.
