First attempt at making kitten ears ! (steps explained)

I ordered an adorable full kitten gear last September, and it got shipped a bit more than a month after I should've received it. I was just glad I could finally have it in seven to ten weeks ! But then, I noticed that I selected the wrong address ( with my own zip code, for some reason '-' ) when I ordered it, so it'll be sent back to the sender. I don't have a tracking number for it, so chances are I'm not gonna get it anytime soon. I was extremely sad since it was a birthday gift from Master.

So I decided to make my own kitten ears ! 


I tried to sew both of the different fur together at first, but the result wasn't really what I was looking for, so I tried hot glue! c: It worked like a charm, but I spilled too much on one side of the fabric, and so I couldn't get the wire to reach the tip of the ear :c which is why it looks a bit floppy ( it's still adorable and very soft though ! <3
  )

 

First ear !

 

 

Then I made the second one by using hot glue right away. I glued the wire directly onto the beige fur, added one last bit of glue to the short/white fabric, and put it together. It was kind of tricky but the result is amazing! <3  I gave them a nice "3D" effect, added a bit of pink and red to their inner fur with crayolas and that was it~ The bell was already sewed onto the white fur ( I had to cut up my $3 kitten tail from eBay, which had the said bell sewn onto it already -- totally worth it :3 ), and I added a cute lace bracelet I bought from a con artist to the left ear-- it clamps on it, so I can take it off without any issues! c: I cut some fur off the edges, shaped them and glued them to a headband.

 

Done !!


It feels so good to wear your own gear! It's not as complicated as it seems, give it a try~  <3

Such a good job! the ears look so cute ^_^ . What did you use to attach them to your hair?

I have a pair of kitty ears and a tail from ebay. the tail is kinda ''meh'' quality'' but the ears are alright. 

They use clips to attach them your hair, took me quite a few tries to get it right since I had never use clips before.

Aww thank you so much !  <3 

I glued them to an old headband c: 

Aah right, I had the same gear~ I had to cut up the tail's fur to make those ears though... R.I.P.

Clips can be tricky, I understand what you mean ! > ^ < and they fall off so easily ugh

Those look really cute! I know a trick for sewing that may give them the ability to stand, similar to your 3d effect that I use for my unicorn ears!

 

Although...I'm not entirely sure how you'd go about attaching them to a headband since mine are attached to a hoodie.

 

If you're interested I'll surely share!

 

Great job!

Wow those look really good, altough where did you find the materials?

I bought the beige fake fur at my local fabric store, which cost about $4 (CAD) for a yard.

 

I cut the (inner) white fake fur off those cheap tail+ears+choker bundles you can find on eBay for like $3.

 

And like I said the bell was already attached onto the tip of the eBay tail, so I just worked with the fabric as if the bell wasn't there.

 

Thanks for asking c:  <3
