Thanks for your comments and interest! I made another pair for myself, so here is the step-by-step.

Materials and pattern: I just used cheapo craft felt; it's good because it's relatively stiff and stands up on its own. You can make the ears any size you want really, but make a paper pattern so each ear is the same. My large triangle measures 7.75 cm at the base and is 6 cm tall. Cut the smaller one with whatever allowance you want to show on the inner ear. I made sure to mark which side was "up" on my pattern pieces because they weren't symmetrical.

Sew the pieces together! You may be able to glue them instead, depending on what your felt is like. I liked the way the stitches looked. If you are sewing, it is important to have thread that is the same color as your outer ear.

I'm not sure the name of these clips, but I'm sure most of you are familiar with the style. I would have used the matte black ones, but this is all I had to work with and it looks fine.

I krazy glued the felt around the flat part of the clip.

It's easier to take the curves a little at a time.

I don't trust the glue to do the job on it's own, so I tied the felt down as I went with a double strand of thread.

Three inches at the base was just enough to go around the clip into the shape I wanted, with a little extra bit at the pointy end of the clip.*

I tied it down in a total of six places, finishing the knots with a drop of glue to make sure they wouldn't slip out.

Voila! Your fab new ears.

*That's right, I used inches and centimeters in the same post. WHAT NOW.

Awesome package from meepum! I love those earrings.

And it looks like we need an angel, so if anyone is interested in making a great package for chimes, then please respond to the call.

Summer is for... \../ METAL \../ swap needs a great angel.

chimes was a great swapper and sent super-early. She has been extremely patient so I need an awesome angel for her!

Here's the original thread and here's the gallery.

You will make 4 points worth of crafts for chimes. She lives in the USA; her favorite bands/musicians are Death (Chuck Schuldiner), Children of Bodom (Alexi Laiho), In Flames, Amon Amarth, Dethklok, Megadeth (Dave Mustaine) and EARLY Metallica (nothing after 1989) and NIN. She is allergic to pollen and cats.

Please pm me for her full questionnaire. Thanks!

Hey guys I am getting really excited for partners because I am on a short vacation on Cape Cod, and it is so pretty here! Some lovely critters to poke.

I made these for a friend of mine who was admiring my plastic cat ears that are on elastic. I'm giving them to her tonight, so in the mean time Lisaisab models.

It doesn't show much in the pictures, but the felt is very sparkly.

They are so light, you don't even notice them. I think I'll be making more of these. They are very simple to do, but I was thinking of doing some step-by-step photos if anyone is interested.

EDIT: Scroll down or click here for tutorial!

And edited for a picture of the ears with their new owner (didn't want to use flash at the concert but I think it looks pretty awesome).

The corset top from pennydreadfull is really cool! I also love that Dorkariffic used sequins to do that skull and cross bones. Awesome.

Phizzy, I love your ship and shells.
noooitare, I really like your crayon technique! I will try it, it sounds very satisfying.

No new pages from me yet, but I've got some ideas going for a page about a festival I attended and a memoriam page for a friend of mine. There's also a spread that I've been adding bits to, but I've sort of stalled at the moment.

More inspiration! Here's an altered journal page that I did a while ago.

The writing behind it I copied from a scientific article on cuttlefish brain organization.

Mmm, that looks great.
I had cooked rice left over from last night's Indian food, so I fried it up with some onions, tomatoes, and an egg, with curry powder and a few herbs, topped with grated cheese when it was done. Tastes pretty decent for a made up recipe!
