Felt Kitty Tail and PawsTwo of my kids went at kitties for Halloween this year. To go with their ears, I made these easy tails and paws to complete their costumes.

Supplies:

  • black felt (wide enough for tail length)
  • white felt
  • light pink felt
  • black mittens or gloves
  • black elastic
  • scissors
  • sewing machine
  • hot glue gun
  • paper (for templates)

Steps:

  1. Create a template for the tail on paper, include the accent area as shown below. Cut out the template. Pin it to a double-thickness of black felt. Cut out the felt tail.

  3. Remove the template and pin the two tails together. Sew the tail on the sewing machine, as close to the edge as possible. Tie off thread.

  5. Fold the end of the tail over to create a pocket large enough for the elastic to go through. Sew it in place on the sewing machine.
