Step 1: Cut out the templates
Pin the template securely to one piece of fleece, making sure that the right side of the fleece (fluffy side) is facing upwards.
Mark around the edge of the template with pencil or tailors chalk – including cut out for mouth.
Cut out around the design carefully. Also cut out the mouth hole accurately – fold the fleece in half to start the initial cut. (Image 2).
Remove the pins and the template/pattern.
Repeat for the back without the cut out for the mouth.
