Felt Cat Ears Tutorial

 Felt cat ears for pretend play, dress-up, costumes. These are simple to sew felt ears that slide onto a headband. A super quick and easy project, too.

What you need:
  • Paper and pencil to make a template
  • Wool felt in 2 different colors
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • Headband (I used a fabric covered headband)

 What you do:
  • With paper and pencil draw the 2 templates shown in the photo. The big ear piece is approximately 2.5 inches wide and 5.25 inches tall. The little ear piece is approximately 1.75 inches wide and 1 7/8 inches tall.
  • Use those paper templates to cut out 2 big ear pieces and 2 little ear pieces out of the wool felt.
  •  Fold a big ear piece in half, place a little ear piece on top.
  • At the sewing machine topstitch around the little ear piece.
  • Repeat for the 2nd ear.
  • Slide the cat ears onto the headband.
Purrfect for the little kitty cat lover in your life :)
