Step 1: Pea Shooter Head Components
The outer covering of the pea shooter heads was a lime green fleece fabric we found at a fabric store. We had to experiment a bit to find the right shape to sew the head coverings, but hopefully these photos give a good idea. The fleece was very elastic, so the exact shape isn't that important. We just tried to make it on the tight side, so it would stretch around the forms, giving definition to the head and holding everything together.
The dimension of one side of the head covering is roughly 8"x16". With the main part of the head being 8"x8" and the cone protrusion also being 8". We left a fair bit of fabric for the "neck" and only cut it down once all the pieces were assembled. We didn't sew the "neck" seams all the way down because we needed to be sure we could fit the foam ball.
