Happy Wednesday, everybody, and welcome to the quillegible blog of happiness! On Monday I gave out the winner of the polls and the adorable result of my little experiment, which is removable Mickey Mouse Ears.
- Mouse Ear Template
- Hair Clips
- Sewing Kit
- Hot Glue Gun
- Any Fabric (I used 2 Felt sheets)
Next, cut out the cardboard so that they’re a little smaller than the outline you drew. The cardboard will be the backbone of your ears and when you make them smaller, it’ll be easier to slip them inside the ears after you sew them.
Now, put the cardboard ears to the side.
Next, take your fabric and trace the Ear template on it. You should sketch a couple of centimeters bigger just so when you sew them together you have room to stuff the cardboard and the stuffing. You should have four total Ear pieces, two for each ear.
Take your sewing needle and thread and start sewing! For me, because it’s Eeyore, I used the overcast stitch to get the feeling of the stitches that you see on his character. After sewing about 3/4 of the way, insert one of the cardboard pieces and some stuffing. Then, finish sewing, going all the way across.
Now, take your hot glue gun and attach a hair clip to the bottom of each ear. Then, glue the back of the bottom piece to the bottom of the ear part. It should look like it should be able to stand on its own.
