How to make it

  1. Skunk - Step 1

    To make the body: Cut a large oval of white faux fur and sew it on the front of the sweatshirt. Cut a long strip of white faux fur. Starting at the top front of the hood, sew a stripe down the back of the hood to the bottom of the sweatshirt .

  2. Skunk - Step 2

    To make the ears: Cut two ear shapes from the black faux fur and sew them together. That's one ear. Repeat for the other ear, then sew both ears to the hood on each side of the white stripe. Trim the fur on the ears if it's too fluffy.

  3. Skunk - Step 3

    To make the tail: Cut a rectangle with a rounded end, from the black faux fur and a matching one from the white. Sew the two together, leaving the flat ends open. Stuff with packing peanuts, then sew the ends shut. Sew the flat end of the tail to the bottom rear of the sweatshirt.

  4. Skunk - Step 4

    To make the tail stand up: Sew nylon thread through the top of the tail and attach it to the back of the sweatshirt.

  5. Using face paint, color your child's nose black and draw whiskers -- and you're ready to go!
