NEW!!!: Tutorial on how to attach cat ears to various items: [link]

My first tutorial! I made this method up, so I thought I'd share. (I'm sure someone's thought of it before though.) I hope it's easy to understand. If I misspelled anything or something sounds weird, just let me know.

So I made these cat ears for my Cat Returns cosplay and when I was done, I thought to make a tutorial. The ear in the early pictures is a felt one I did real quick for pictures. My final product ended up being in fleece. And now they look lopsided on the wig. Gah. I haaated sewing them to the wig.


Pattern: [link]
Forgive me, I have no idea what size this will turn out to be. >> But it's easy enough to resize it.

Also, I would love to see any ears made with this!

These are exactly what I was looking for for my Yoru cosplay!
I was wondering, how did you sew the ears onto the wig?

Thank you so much! This looks very simple to follow (excellent, because I suck at sewing!), with brilliant results!. I'm going to cosplay Grell from black butler/kuroshitsuji as the Cheshire cat, so ears are kind of vital! :D Thank you again! :heart:
