Here's roughly how it goes together. The pectoral and the cartouche (the long oval) need to be beaded. The beadwork on the cartouche will spell "TUTBUCKS"

For the curious, it's two layers of the pale blue calcutta with batting between them. The coffee-and-cream colored "linen" was machine appliqued onto the top layer of calcutta, then the three were machine stitched together and the edges bound with the same stone blue binding used throughout the costume

You can see the applique stitching on the "linen" look fabric, and the edge stitching that holds the back side of the binding in place
Now I have to do the beading, and if I can find adequate images of the four sons of Horus, make paper-cut-out canopic jar lids
