  1. Cut all of the pieces from felt.
  2. Position the black eyes and muzzle on the front body piece and stitch in place, using black thread.
  3. Using white thread, add a “sparkle” to each eye, then nostrils and a mouth to the muzzle.
  4. Fold the black mane piece in half and stitch to the top of the front body piece.Zebra Finger Puppet Muzzle - Felt With Love Designs
  5. Using pink thread, stitch pink inner ear to the front of each ear piece. Zebra Finger Puppet Ear Start - Felt With Love Designs

  7. Stitch one ear to the left of the mane and one ear to the right of the mane, at the top of the front body piece. Zebra Finger Puppet Ear Attached - Felt With Love Designs
  8. Match up the front body piece and the back body piece and stitch together using a blanket stitch, leaving bottom open (I also go back and stitch just the front edge of the opening with a blanket stitch to reinforce it but that is totally optional.)
