How to Make the Rabbit Headband

Step 1

Cut two long isosceles triangles from the white felt. The longer you make these, the more floppy they will be. Ours measured approximately 8 inches tall and 3 inches wide at the widest point. Cut two long (but slightly smaller) isosceles triangles from the pink felt.

Step 2

Place the pink triangles approximately 1/2 inch from the bottom of the white triangles to create the two ears. (Note: In photo, bottoms of white triangles have been folded back — see Step 3.)  Glue to secure.

Step 3

Fold the bottoms of the white triangles back 1/2 inch so that the pink parts are flush with the headband. (See photo in Step 2.) Glue folded-back white flaps to headband.

Tip: Your ears will be floppy — if you want them to stand up straight, start with shorter triangles and cut four white triangles (instead of two) from the felt. Follow the steps in the instructions for the cat and mouse ears for gluing the layers together.
