Floral wire should work, but I don't think you even need it. For the ears, cut a wide triangle (you'll be folding it in half) of fur for his ears, and a triangle of the same size of a thinner, darker fabric for the inside. You can sew the two together on the /\ edges, but not on the bottom. Now fol...

Is there a specific type of wire or material (for the ears) I should use? Or does it not really matter?

I think maybe this weekend I'll see if I can go to Wal-Mart or the bookstore and see if I can find any good books on sewing and such.
Already asked my friend if I could borrow her sewing book, but she never answered if it was a "yes" or a "no". ~.~

don't watch the needle while sewing except when you slow down to get around corners or something. Watching the needle go up & down will "hypnotize" you, and you'll quickly veer off path. ^^ (*has fallen victim to hypnotic needle numerous times*) Wow.

Preferably both hand sewing and machine. I really suck at both, so it'd probably be best if I tried to improve both.

The only thing I've made is a pillow and I don't even remember where that is...I think I hid it because it turned out so horrible. ^^;;;
