How to Make the Cat Headband

Step 1

Cut four small triangles out of the black felt. Ours measured approximately 2 1/2-3 inches on each side. Cut two smaller triangles out of the pink felt. Ours were approximately 1 1/2 inches each.

Step 2

Glue the two pink triangles on top of two of the black triangles so the bottoms of the pink triangles are flush with the bottoms of the black triangles.

Step 3

Glue the remaining two black triangles to the backs of the first two. Leave the bottom edges unglued.

Step 4

Sandwich the headband between the two unglued flaps of one ear. The ear should be slightly off center on the headband. Repeat with the second ear.

Tip: Gluing three layers of fabric together will make the ears more sturdy when you're wearing the headband. You want them to stand up straight.
