Another tutorial using scraps!
Supplies used in this tutorial include:
- Plastic headband. Mine is white, but a color that is close to the color of the ears you’re making is the best.
- Mod Podge or something similar. I am once again using that glue/varnish mix I found at Panduro here in Sweden.
- Old gift box paper.
- Scrap Fabric.
- Black tape. I think it’s called cord tape.
- Pattern for cat ears. Download the printable pattern below.
This is the pattern I made for the ears.
Download it here. It should be printed onto A4 pattern.
Print out the pattern, trace and cut out the ears from the sturdier gift box paper.
Lightly fold the ears about half way up to the tip.
Decide where you want the ears on the headband and tape them to the band like I did in the picture below.
Continue taping until the ears are fasten securely onto the headband.
Since my headband was white I had to continue wrapping the tape until the entire headband was covered.
Cut out the fabric you want for the back of the ears.
Glue on the fabric with mode podge. Let it dry for a while.
Trim the edges, fold over to the front and glue them in place.
Glue on the front fabric and cut off all the excess fabric.
The cat ear headband is done!
