Ear Wax Thank You Ear

What do you get an ENT as a thank you gift?  An Ear Wax Thank You Ear of course.

My friend is an ENT and helped us out with something.  I thought a felt ear with "Thank You" written on removable ear wax was the perfect way to say thanks.

First I cut the following pieces out of felt:

I then sewed the two duplicate pieces of the ear together with a blanket stitch:

Then I sewed the little flap on leaving the right side of it unstitched so it forms a pocket for the ear wax.

I then took a Sharpie Stained fabric marker and drew on the rest of the ear and wrote "Thank you" on the wax.

And that was it!  My son liked it so much I had to make him one too.  

I tried to convince my friend that this would make a fabulous business card, as long as people didn't lose the ear wax with all the contact info on it.  I don't think he was convinced.
