Step 1: Step One: Make a Patteren

so, make a pattern any style. I made mine with just plain old paper, but you can use whatever you like.

Step 2: Step 2: Trace It on the (FAKE!!!) Fur.

to make the tail even better, leave a 1in extra. Make sure you use 100% fake fur OR I will go all PETA on you!

Step 3: Step 3. Cut It Out

cut out your tail. Make sure you like it before you move on to the next step.

Step 4: Step 4: Sew It Up!

this is the most time consuming step, it took about 3.5 hours, and make sure you tuck in the fursuit on the sides so it will turn out fluffier!

Step 5: Step 5:Turn It Inside Out!

turn the tail fur-side out so its fluffy! Now,your new tail is just about done!

Step 6: Step 6:Stuff It!

yay! The most fun step! I used poly-fill but you can use leftover scraps from fabric or whatever you want.

Step 7: Step 7: Sew Up the Opening

sew the end of your taily up and one more step and your done!

Step 8: Step 8: Sew a Piece of Ribbon on the Back

so, I used a 3 inch pice of this pink ribbion of the back. Now, congrats! Your new tail is done!

Step 9: Step 9:wear!

wear it to your coffé shop, bookstore, mall anywhere!
