Fold the felt just beneath the traced circle leaving about half an inch of felt to slip the head band in. Fold the two circles over the headband and glue in place with hot glue. Repeat this step for the second ear. Using the same soup can, or one slightly smaller, trace two circles on to the white felt. Cut out the white circles and hot glue them to the front of the waistband on the red shorts.

To make Mickey’s tail, cut approximately a 6” strips of 3’ long felt or fleece material. Roll the material and hot glue the roll. Stuff one end of the roll with polyfil (or newspaper) and then hot glue each end shut.
