Assembly

To make the ears stand up straight, Kristen @ haakmaarraak uses an ironing stiffening spray before assembly.

With A, sew the button on the cozy. With B, sew the pompom on the back of the cozy. Next, loosely place your ears on the opposite side of the cozy. Make sure the ears are aligned left and right from the pompon and the lower part of the ears is approximately 3 rows from the top. If you’re happy with the alignment, sew them on tight with B.
