I made a couple of kitty eared hats using information from this post:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=139364.0 I just altered the ears to be cat ears instead of hippo ears.

The first one I made was for my boyfriend. He likes hats a lot but has a really (almost ridiculously) large head so he can't just go and shop for them like normal. He requested that I make him a hat with kitty cat ears. It is made of some black fake fur I had lying around from my Halloween costume 3 years ago and a lining of plain black knit cotton. The inner ears are made from the butt bow off of an aunt's old early 80's prom dress. Here he is modeling his newest hat:

I told one of my gaming friends about the hat I made and he asked me to make one for him, too. It is made of the same fake fur and peachy satin, but the lining is a pretty polyester knit from my stash (I stole it from my Grandma's stash about a year ago) and I put on ear-flaps instead of a fold-able brim. I used French seams on the ears for this one to make them stand up a little more than they did on the last one and I think it really did help a lot; these ears aren't falling over at all really. Yes, the right ear is supposed to be bent like that and the left one is supposed to be standing up more; it took me a while to figure out how to cut the ear lining fabric so that they would do that, but it was totally worth it for how they turned out! Here is me modeling:

And here is a closeup of the lining fabric ( I really like it, but it's too thin for most of what I've wanted to use it for so far):

Haha I'd say that's a look of pure joy on your boyfriend's face.  I love the lining of the ears; it looks like a stuffed animal.  Great job!
