Roll the triangle-shaped felt fabric piece into a horn. Then, sew to keep it together. Wrap the piece of glitter fabric around the horn and sew it in place.
8. Sew the Fabric Scraps into the Ears
If you cut the fabric scraps for the ears, sew them into the ears.
9. Sew the Ribbon into the Wings
Take a length of ribbon and tie the ends together. Sew the ribbon loop on the inside of the felt wings, so that the ribbon is between the two wings.
10. Sew the Glitter Mesh Pieces on the Wings
Sew the glitter mesh wings on the felt wings.
11. Sew the Unicorn’s Ears on Top of Its Head
Sew the left ear on the left side of the unicorn, and the right ear on the right side.
12. Sew the Two Sides of the Unicorn’s Body Together
Start at the front side of the body. Move up towards the head. When you reach the unicorn’s forehead, place the horn between the two sides. Sew the horn in place. Then, place the unicorn’s bangs behind the horn. Sew it in place.
13. Sew the Unicorn’s Mane
Put the unicorn’s mane hair between the two sides of the head. Sew it in place.
14. Sew the Wings on the Unicorn’s Back
When you reach the unicorn’s back, place the wings between the sides of the body. Sew them in place.
15. Sew the Unicorns’ Tail
When you reach the unicorn’s bum, put the tail between the two halves of the body. Sew it in place.
16. Fill the Unicorn with Fiber Fill
Leave a little hole in the unicorn so you can fill it with pillow stuffing. Then, sew the hole closed.
17. Sew the Unicorn’s Eyes
Sew two black beads on both sides of the unicorn’s head. You can use the same length of thread for sewing the beads. Sew through the unicorn’s head. This way, the eyes look symmetrical.
