1. Sew the snap fastenings onto each end of one of the yellow ovals, ensuring your stitches are tight and secure.

2. Lay the taco "fillings" on top of the other yellow oval, in any formation that you like. Bear in mind that the oval will be folded in half to form the taco shape, so space your fillings out evenly. Pin these in place.

3. Lay the first yellow oval on top of the second, with fastenings facing up, sandwiching your fillings in between. Pin this in place if you wish. Using a small straight stitch, begin stitching through the entire stack of felt. This encloses and secures the filling in between the two yellow ovals.

4. Sew all the way around the outside of the oval, about 0.25cm in from the edge until you have secured everything in place, then tie off your sewing thread.

5. To use, wrap a pair of earphones around the open taco and then snap closed. Your earphones will be securely held inside the taco, while looking mighty cute!
