I used beige felt for the features, and a pair of brown jeans (ladies' size) made seven purses. I used buttons for the eyes.
You will need:
Main fabric and lining fabric - two 4" squares, one 4" x 3.5" rectangle with one long edge cut into a curve.
Four main fabric pieces cut to an ear shape.
Two felt pieces cut to the shape of the face.
Two felt pieces cut into smaller ear pieces.
Two small black buttons.
One small square of velcro.
First applique the felt face to the flap piece, and the ear felt pieces to two of the main fabric ear pieces. I drew on the shape for the nose and mouth and then sewed over them with a narrow, close zig-zag stitch. I sewed on the buttons for the eyes using my machine.
Applique the velcro to the lining fabric flap piece and one of the 4" squares of main fabric.
Put the second main fabric ear pieces right sides together with the appliqued ones and sew round the curved edge with a scant 1/4" seam. Clip the curved seams and turn right side out. Press and then top stitch round the curved edge.
Sew the main fabric square to which you have added the velcro to one of the lining squares along the top edge.
Open out and pin the ears on top of the flap piece. Put the second pair of joined squares on top of this pair, right sides together. Sew around the edges, leaving the short edge of the linings unsewn for turning. Warning - this stage is really tricky - you need to avoid sewing the ears!
