As I mentioned in this party post, my daughter adores Stitch from the Disney film Lilo and Stitch. She really wanted Stitch ears to wear at her party. I couldn’t find any, so I decided to make my own. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to make your own animal ears headband!

Supplies used in this Stitch ears tutorial:

I traced the ears on her Stitch doll to make a template, but you can search online for animal ear templates as well.

Cut the ears out from the blue and purple cuddle fabric squares.  You need two of each color. Place one of each color together with the wrong sides facing out.

Stitch around the curved edges, but leave the bottom straight edge open.

Flip the ears inside out.

Trace the ears on the Support Soft Foam Stabilizer.  Cut the stabilizer so it is smaller than the ear.  This is what will keep the ears perky and upright.

Slip the stabilizer into the ear, and fold the bottom edges over as pictured.  Stitch them in place.

Stitch the ears to the headband.  I looped through the ears and around the headband to hold them in place till the next step.

Cut a piece of blue cuddle fabric to wrap around the headband.  Start at the base of one side and stitch the fabric closed.  I love to use cuddle fabric because the stitches disappear and are hidden in the fuzzy, soft fabric.

Continue all the way around until the headband is covered.
