Hooded Scarves to Crochet 

Add small safety eyes & little red felt tongues using hot glue.

Using snake tails, sew along the edge of the handle flat to the bag, as you attach the snakes.

Are your snakes too 'loose' looking? try placing a little glue between sections of the curl to make it less 'bouncy'. I also chose to add a bit of hot glue to fasten the snakes down. You may choose to leave them hang loose.
