Step 1: Supplies You'll Need
- Pale pink hoodie
- Hot Glue
- Safety Pins
- Fabric Scissors
- Unicorn Shapes Template
- Gold Ribbon
- Cotton Balls or batting
Step 2: Cut Out the Shapes
Print and cut out all the shapes from the unicorn shapes template.
Trace and cut out each shape on the coordinating pieces of felt.
This unicorn hoodie uses 2 large flowers and 2 small flowers
Step 3: Create the Ears
Start gluing the felt shapes together before adding them to the hoodie.
To create the unicorn ears, layer and adhere the dark pink felt shapes on the light pink felt shapes.
Tip: Be careful to make sure they are laying in the correct direction so that the shapes mirror each other!
Step 4: Create the Flowers
Each flower in the floral crown uses 7 circle shapes. 6 are used for the flower petals and one is for the base.
To make the flower petals, fold 6 of the circles in half and add a dab of glue in the center. Then, fold them again into quarters and add another dab of glue.
Glue 4 of the flower petals onto the circle base.
Tip: Position the folds so that they are going in different directions.
Add a dab of glue on top and attach your last 2 flower petals to complete your 3D flower.
Repeat these steps to create the additional flowers.
Step 5: Create the Horn
To create the horn, roll the white shape to create a long skinny cone. Use hot glue to secure this shape. Fill the cone batting, or pieces of cotton balls.
Tip: use a pencil or chopstick to push the batting down to the end of the cone to make sure it’s fully filled.
Step 6: Apply the Pieces
It’s time to add the felt pieces and shapes to the hood!
Tip: use a water erase pen or chalk to mark where you’ll apply these shapes, as shown by the dotted lines on this image. Make sure to leave room for the eyes in the front!
Place your horn on the hoodie and mark where to make the cuts to insert the tabs into the hoodie.
Note: this hoodie had a double layer of material so whenever we made cuts, it was only through the top layer.
Slip the tabs into the holes and use hot glue in the holes and safety pins underneath to secure it in place.
Step 7: Attach the Ears
Cut a hole for each ear and slip the tabs through the holes. Spread them out once inside. Use a combination of hot glue and safety pins inside to secure these in place.
Note: Don’t worry about any glue or holes showing as you’ll be covering this up in the next step.
Step 8: Add the Flowers & Eyes
Now, secure your 3D felt flowers between the horn and the ears.
Adhere the eyes on the top front of the hood.
Step 9: Create the Mane
To create the mane, cut long ½ inch strips of felt.
Tie a knot in the center.
Secure each piece with safety pins along the seam of the hood.
Step 10: Create the Tail
To create a tail, cut a 4-inch strip of felt then create long fringe on the piece.
Repeat this step with additional colors.
Pin these pieces to the bottom of the back of the hoodie.
