-white fabric scrap
-interfacing: fusible, Heat'N'Bond, stitch witchery, etc.
-thread (white and black)
1. Trace template onto interfacing
I used fusible interfacing because that's what I had on hand. Heat'N'Bond is double sided that makes it even easier if you have that.
Since my interfacing only had one fusible side, I traced the face on the shiny/ glue side using a black marker.
2. Iron interfacing on white fabric
I used a scrap of white broadcloth. I iron the interfacing on the highest setting for the fabric without steam.
Using black thread and a shorter stitch length (1.5) I sewed the mouth and teeth lines with a straight stitch.
For the nostril holes, you could just sew straight lines too.
For my nose holes, I chose to use my zig-zag stitch. I set the stitch length to almost zero, or the button hole setting. Then I started with a narrow zig-zag (1) and as I sewed twisted the knob up to stitch width 5 then back down to 1. It makes a oval shape of thick thread.
