Find a friend that has really big ear lobes - they work the best. WIth your digital camera take a nice up close picture. Using your computer photo program decide on the size you would like to make your ear - my ear measures 8x4. Print out on paper - this is going to be your pattern to use to make your ear. Once you have printed out your ear on paper - cut out your ear *remember leave about 1/4 inch seam allowance for sewing.
