This Indian creepy cobra is lots of fun!

Materials Needed:
1) Black sequined material - 1 metre
2) Flexible plastic pipe - 3 feet length and 2 inches diameter
3) Stiff cardboard - for shaping the head
4) White/silver sequined material - 1/4 metre
5) A small amount of stuffing for the head and padding out the hood
6) 1 metre plain black cloth for stuffing the body
7) Two shiny silver beads

How to make it:
Fold the sequined black material in half vertically wrong side outand sew along the edge to create a long tube. Turn it right side out.
Wrap the flexible pipe round in the plain black cloth and push it into the sequined cloth tube
and shape the body. Now shape the tail at one end of the body and sew it in place.

Cut the cardboard into a hood shape and push it into the top end. Shape the hood and stuff lightly around the cardboard to pad the hood out. Leave a bit of space at the end of the tube. Fold this in half and stuff it and shape it into a head.

Sew firmly in place. Sew the beads on the head for eyes. Now, roll the silvery sequined
material into a tube. Shape the tube like a happy smiley mouth on the hood.Fold the ends of
the ''smiley'' over onto themselves to make ''balls'' at each end. Sew to the hood.

Your cobra is ready!

Tip: If you attach some strings to your cobra, you can turn him into a string puppet - the way
I did!

Very creative!

The cobra is such a neat idea! The use of black sequined material for the skin makes it look so realistic. Thanks a lot for sharing your idea Eesha.
