How to Make Fabric Tubes:
To make a snake:
Step 1: Cut a 5x30-inch piece of fabric. Fold the fabric in half lengthwise with the wrong side of the fabric facing out. Sew a seam along the long end, then turn it inside out. Sew one end of the tube closed.
Step 2: Stuff the fabric tube with batting at the open end. Sew the open end closed.
Step 3: Cut a piece of felt for the tongue. Sew it to the snake. Sew on two buttons for the eyes. Use markers to decorate the snake.
To create a wreath:
Step 1: Make 3 tubes just like the snake but use 3 different colors of fabric.
Step 2: Braid the tubes together, then sew the ends together forming a circle. Use ribbon to tie a bow around the ends.
To make a bed bolster:
Use an 18x54-inch piece of fabric. Repeat snake steps 1 and 2 to make the tube.
