Default Re: Need help... how to make Minnie Ear clips

You then insert a piece of boning, the boning should be almost the full height of the ear (but not touching the top), the boning keeps the ears straight up perfectly. Then I sort of turn the bottom edges in, and glue it to a lined alligator clip, I have also seem them stitched onto a snap clip. I hope this helps and makes sense.
Thank you!! I would love pics, but please only if you have time... even just some pics of your finished ears would be awesome. THANK YOU!

Once you turn the ears in- do you topstich around?

Your GORGEOUS pics of the amazing Disney creations inspired me actually... I saw your DD wearing them in one of the pics on the thread with your amazing creations. You are SO SO talented!!
