Instruction
1
We must start with the pattern making ears. Draw on paper a triangle of the required size and cut it out.
2
Then attach the pattern to foam and cut out the shoulder detail on the contour. So you need to make two of the same ear.
3
Attach the pattern to the wrong side of faux fur and trace them with chalk or marker. Add the seam allowance and the thickness of the foam (a little less than a centimeter) and cut out. Similar items you should have four.
4
Take two of the four fur detail and fold over each other with fur on the inside. Sew them together manually or by machine, leaving a slit at the bottom of the triangle. Remove the item and insert a foam blank. Similar steps will follow with the remaining parts to make the second ear.
5
Now we need to add lugs on the rim. If you have a headband covered with cloth, then sew on to it the parts will be very easy. Sew with thread of suitable colors, grabbing the bottom edge of the eyelet and the fabric rim will be fine if you'll be able to place the ear in a half circle so it will look more natural.

If you have a simple plastic bezel or the metal spring, then sew ears to him as tightly as possible, so that later parts are not spun around the rim and did not go on the head.
7
You only have to decorate the accessory. If you wish, you can sew a small white tuft of hair in the middle of the ear.
