Tutorial: Mascot Mouse Ears

Tutorial: Let your favorite mascot show their Disney side with some easy to make, felt Mickey Mouse earsIn Tucson, the rodeo is a big deal. There are nine days of rodeo fun, a parade, and all of the kids in Tucson get two days off from school for rodeo break. Seriously.

The official name for the event is "La Fiesta de los Vaqueros" which many Tucsonans translate as "Since the kids are out of school, let's go to Disneyland!" A few years ago, my daughter and I traded our cowboy hats for mouse ears and jumped on the Disneyland bandwagon.

Of course Disneyland is fun anytime, but I love it over rodeo break because we run into so many of our friends and neighbors while we're there. I guess it really is a small world. The Tucsonans at Disneyland are easy to spot too, because we're all wearing our University of Arizona Wildcat gear.

Here's how my Wilbur Wildcat shows his Disney side.


  • mascot shirt
  • ruler
  • paper
  • black felt
  • scissors
  • needle and thread


Start by measuring your mascot to get an idea of what size mouse ears he'll need.
There are plenty of Mickey Mouse line drawings available online. You may need to print them in a couple sizes until you find the one that one that fits perfectly.
Cut out your paper template and let your mascot try it on.
Once you find the perfect fit, use your paper pattern as a template to cut mouse ears out of felt.
Place the felt ears and hand stitch around to secure them to your shirt. Then, they can be easily removed later.

Since we are a house divided, we decided to invite Sparky along for some Disney fun, too.
