  • Pattern for Men's Bald Eagle Beak

  • Assemble like "A" below.
  • Add pipe cleaner ear pieces (beak will appear to move when you speak if you tuck bottom part under your chin)
  • Add big black eyebrows if you want to look more like "Sam the Eagle".

2. Make an Eagle Collar:

  • Use white felt or an old white t-shirt.
  • Cut 3-4 identical pieces like "B" below.
