A cute kitty head band to keep your ears stylishly warm!
I've looked for a long time for one of these and sadly, they were not worth the amount of money a few shops were selling them for. They make great get up and go accessories for bad hair days!

  • How to make an ear / horn. Simple Kitty Cat Head Band - Step 1
    Step 1

    1) You’ll need stretch knit. Something thick would be great, fleece would work too just make sure to add about an extra inch or two to the length. Cut the knit out to 6″x 20″ Note: The 20″ length could be larger if you have a head full of creativity (big head ^_^” like me), or if you are using fleece.

    2) Print out the kitty ears template here.

    3) Cut out four ears from the template.

    4) Place a piece of interfacing to the ears, and gently iron it on. Interfacing helps stiffens the fabric so it’s easier to sew the ears, and to give it a nice shape.

    5) Cut out the ears from the interfacing.

    6) Place the ears right sides together and sew around the curve.

    7) Flip it inside out, and sew along the edge again to keep the ears flat.

    8) On the 6″ X 20″ piece of fabric, find the mid-point of the 20″ length. Measure 2″ outwards from that mid-point and place the ears on those markings.

    9) Fold the piece of fabric in half and sew across.

    10) Flip it inside out and roll it so that the seam is in the middle where the ears are.

    11) Fold in half and sew.

    12) Flip it inside out and stitch the ears to the head band.

    13) Scrunch the middle to make it look like a turban/whiskers? (optional)

    14) Trace around the inner ear of the ears. (optional)

    15) Starting beading the inner ears. (optional)
