Cut out ur white fleece & it should look like this :3 the bottom aligns with pocket seam. This will be like a ruler to keep the bottom straight. Have the top point in the middle of the neck

This is where we need to access the pocket. We will take the glue and skip this area when gluing the white down onto the donkey belly.

Glue time ! This stuff is magical. Go ahead & start gluing using the tip as a brush. Glide the glue with a thin layer on top of the opening of the pocket. This way u can still have access.

Tada ! Invisible belly pocket :3 now start gluing the top of the pocket to the white so it really disappears and the rest of the belly down. For the other side of the pocket do the same.

Example for the left side.  Remember in my nyan cat i said to not make blobs anywhere instead smooth them out with the tip of ur glue to make layers otherwise the glue could seep through.

Here's an example of the top part of the pocket with the white fleece glued down. I stuck my hands in so u can see where to not apply glue. Now glue going up to the top. Thin layers along the edges.

Take the white fleece and fold it <--- this way u can save time and cut two pieces instead of one each. I measured 7 in top to bottom and with just an eye, created my own curve.

Now take ur donkey inside ear and place it on top of the outside donkey grey fleece. I used the white as a pattern. Measure 1 in away all around the white. That's where we'll cut the outside pieces.

Here's an example of how I do my patterns and cut outs. U can see when u get ur fabric, its already folded making a 2 ply (piece) when u cut.

When sewing, move with the thread. Im doing a 3/4 seam. When I start I sew about 1 inch and then reverse and sew forward. Slow down when u get near the tip of the ear

Yeah near the tip slowed down and let the needle stick all the way through when ur at the tip. Ur then going to lift the foot (the part holding down the fabric) and pivot the ear to the other side wee
