No-Sew Felt Mouse Ears

We were in need of some last minute costumes this year. One of the ones I made were these no-sew mouse ears.

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Create a template for the ears. I drew one ear and included 1/2 the length needed to go around the headband. Then cut out 2 ears on the fold.
  2. Create a template for the inner ear and cut out 2 inner ears from pink felt. Glue an inner ear to each ear, as shown below.
  3. Apply glue to the back of the each ear and fold in half. Be sure to not add glue to the center area, where the headband will slide through.
  4. Slide the ears onto the headband and apply glue if needed to hold ears in place.
  5. Optional Sewn Mouse Ears: I also made a fancier sewn version. I cut out 2 ears from wool felt, following above instructions. Cut out 2 inner ears from fabric. Open up the ears and sew the inner ears onto the ears, using a zigzag stitch.
  6. Fold the ears in half and pin together. Then sew around the outer edge and along the bottom to create a pocket for the headband.
  7. Insert the headband into the pockets of the ears. I used embroidery floss to tightly stitch the ears to the headband to hold them in place.
