Lightly Block scarf before adding eyes and nostrils.
Blocking scarf – To block scarves use hot iron and kitchen size towel wet. Lay scarf on iron board or hard surface and place wet towel over scarf, lightly press iron on towel, do not move but just quick press. This steams the scarf and flattens it out so it lays nice. Repeat for full length of scarf. As you steam press be sure you shape if needed. Let dry for at least 15 minutes. If you leave iron on to long or press hard you can ruin scarf.
Using guide cut 28 eyes and nostrils and glue to each head as shown. Let dry.
