Blue felt sheet, 9" x 12"
White felt sheet, 9" x 12"

1/2" wide headband
3/8" wide ribbon in pink and blue
Assorted small flowers

DIRECTIONS: Download the PDF for the Unicorn Horn Ear Pattern. Cut two ears from the white felt. Cut one unicorn horn from the blue felt and the sheer fabric. Cut two unicorn horn bases from the blue felt.
Layer the sheer fabric and felt, and hand or machine-baste together along the outer edge (Tip: temporary quilt basting spray may also be used). Fold the horn in half matching the long straight edge; the sheer fabric will be on the inside. Stitch with a 1/4" seam allowance. Trim seams.
Turn the horn right side out and stuff with fiberfill, but do not over-stuff. Position one base piece over the opening in the bottom of the horn and slipstitch in place around the outside edge.
Thread the embroidery needle with gold metallic floss. Tack the floss in place at the top of the horn. Now, wrap the horn, squeezing gently to give it shape, and tack the floss again at the base.
Fold each ear in, forming a pleat along the lower edge. Machine stitch the pleat from the bottom edge up 3/4".
Wrap the headband with pink and blue ribbon in whatever fashion pleases you.
Center the horn on the top of the headband and glue in place. Glue the remaining base piece in place under the horn and headband, sandwiching the headband between the base pieces.
Glue the ears in place on each side of the horn as follows: Trim away the bulk of the folded pleat as needed, and test the ears before permanently gluing. Position the ears so that the stitching line is glued on the underside of the headband. Wrap the ear around the headband, and glue the ear again to secure it to the headband. Remove flowers from stems, and glue in place as desired.
