Floppy Dog Ears Costume Pattern

To make Floppy Dog Ears:

  1. Print this page.
  2. Determine the size in inches that you want the ears to be from top to bottom as shown in the below diagram with a tape measure.
  3. Divide the size by 11. This will be the size in inches of each grid square.
  4. Mark the grid intersections on the underside of your cloth. Each intersection should be spaced by the amount determined in step 3.
  5. Connect the grid dots with a yardstick, and draw the ear shape onto your grid.
  6. Cut 2 in felt (inside of ears).
  7. Cut 2 in fur fabric.
  8. Sew felt and fur together for each ear.
  9. Sew ears to velvet headband or hood as indicated.

As an example, if you want your ear to measure 10 inches then 10/11 = .9 Convert this into 16th of an inch by multiplying by 16 and you get approximately 14/16" or 7/8" so the grid lines should be 7/8" apart.
