My wolf tail was made pretty simple.

Just cut two pieces of fabric in whatever direction or position you want them to be in (slightly pointing, for example), and make sure that you cut the two pieces mirrored each other.

Then, just sew the two pieces back to back, flip it inside out, stuff it, and sew up the rest. For the loop, just put a piece of a elastic around the top :). My simple tail guide.


Here's a tail I made for Furtopia's very own Onion :).

if you know what you are doing, you can even go with a single piece of fabric, saving on a bit of sewing (maybe 25%)

If you look at this*, I can tell you how I went about producing mine:

1. I marked out two strips of fur (one grey, the other white) to the desired shape prior to cutting.
2. I cut out both strips of fur.
3. I stitched the edges of both strips 'leaving the top out'.
4. I stuffed the tail and then, stitched the top.
5. I stitched the elastic strips (two of them) to the top. Normally, you would have a choice of nylon or elastic.
