Headphone customization - plush cat ears!!
My dad gave me this pair of headphones that wasn't really expensive, but worked really well. The only problem was that they were very plain and boring!
So my first idea was to attach pipe cleaners that were shaped like kitty ears to them. They got bent very easily however, so I made some plush ones out of felt which were much better but kept on sliding away from each other.
Then, I came up with this version, which has the two ears connected to form a sort of headband. They slid around much less and were a lot less trouble. I made the ears look more realistic as well and added tiger stripes.
My headphones have a flat plastic headband that's about one inch wide, so if your's aren't like that, it's okay, I'm sure you can modify the shape to fit your own. If you need help just ask me :)

Take one of the pieces with the other colored felt, and one that doesn't have the other felt on it, and put their "good" sides together, lining them up. Sew along the two longer sides.
I cut them a bit small so I had a very small seam allowance, which is usually ok with felt, but you might want to make them bigger to avoid this problem.
Using any leftover felt, cut out a rectangle that's as wide as you want the space between your ears to be, and long enough to wrap around the headband.
