I made the hat, ears and bow. The pieces came out great. How do you get the ears to stand up? When I sew them on, they just flop backward! Did you sew some kind of stiffener onto the back? Any help would be appreciated!

I used Red heart yarn, which is the stiffest yarn I found, you could make 4 cirlces and sew two circles together, but you could use fabric stiffner if that doesnt work.
