for the spiked ends one, it's pretty much the same thing but you don't fold it over. cut dove tails in the ribbon ends and put a needle through the middle, spread out to make a circle, and sew. then and pompom, wiggle eyes, and mouth.
Congrats it is a very nice version of elmo I had not seen it before love the spike`s one
Thank you soooo much for these instructions!!!!!! I've been wanting to make an Elmo bow for my baby girl and now I can!! THANK YOU!!!!!!
