Position red strips inside cut in hood hem. Arrange "teeth" on top with about 1/2" gap between each one. Pin in place (Image 1). Allow red strips to slightly overlap behind a tooth when one ends and another begins (Image 2). Sew along pin line with gray thread to secure teeth and gums in place (Image 3). Remove pins and trim threads.
Make and Sew Eyes
With sharp scissors, cut out two circles, about 1" in diameter, from black felt quarter (Image 1). Cut out two white circles, slightly larger than the black circles. Layer felt cut-outs, black on top of white and slightly off center, to create two eyes. Pin one on each side of hood (Image 2). Sew around pupils with black thread to secure both layers to hood then remove pins (Image 3). Tip: To care for your finished costume: Hand-wash in lukewarm water with gentle liquid fabric soap and lay flat to dry.
