Step 1: Materials
craft wire. (I suggest 16 gauge or up for sturdiness)
craft pliers / sturdy pair of scissors
Step 2: Make Your Measurements
Decide how long you want your ears to be and double that length. and them double it again
Add all of them together and you have the length you need for your inner wire.
When choosing your wire gauge. take into consideration the thicknes of your fabric and how sturdy you want your reseult to be.
Step 3: Shape Your Ears
I wanted my ears to be a little stubby so o made them slightly more of an oval shaped.
After shaping the ear, fasten the short end around the other. This is where the added 2in comes in. Use 1in on both sides to secure the ear in place.
Repeat this step on the other end.
Step 4: Make Pattern
Draw the shape you would like your ear to be. Consider the length, widest and smallest width size.
The end siDe to be connected must be equal to the band.
Step 5: Cut Fabric
If your ear is oddly shaped like mine and your frabic is not two sided, pay keen attention when cutting. Ensure you have the correct back and front for each side.
In total you will have 5 pieces
Step 6: Sew the Pieces Together
Iron down the sewn ear and proceed to turn them over.
Step 7: Connect the Band
Open and flatten the connecting end of the ear then line up the widths and stitch it to the band on both sides
