Connect one piece of pipe cleaner in the center by twisting the edges together (use white or another color you can’t see through the fabric, I used yellow so you could see the steps).

  • Twist the center together a couple times to create the ears.
  • Place through the fabric opening one side first, then you do have to fold it a bit to get it through the other side. You will need to adjust the pipe cleaner inside the fabric.
  • Fold in half to create the ears. You can stitch up the opening if you’d like but we will be covering it either way.
