My ears get chilly just sitting at my computer especially with the air cleaner on. We keep the house a bit chilly as well. I enjoy wearing these in the house as well as outside when it is cold.
Hubby wanted one to wear under his biking helmet – he is an avid biker. His is the olive green sample.
Having a BAD HAIR DAY? Slip one of these on.
I selected natural fiber fabrics and cotton batting inside these to make them warm.
Once you have your supplies together, the ear warmers are quick projects to make. They make great gifts as well.
These are ‘puffy’ and don’t smash the hair on top of your head.
I made this ear warmer out of cotton sherpa fabric. It is like a sweater knit. Because of the high pile I didn’t want to embroider on it directly . So I added 3-D flowers and leaves.
It has self fabric scrunchies center front and center back.
I made this ear warmer using cotton sweat shirt fleece fabric. I used the fuzzy side outside to be next to my skin. This one shows a scrunchy added in a different color and fabric (cotton interlock), with a second narrow scrunchy in green polyester fleece. Both in colors to match the embroidery design.
If you don’t already have one, a HEMOSTAT is a very useful tool to have in the sewing room. You can use it to turn tubes and grab hold and lock onto things when you need it.
I used my hemostat to put the scrunchies onto the ear warmers. Made the job easy!
This ear warmer is made with 80/20 cotton/poly velour. I added a one color elegant design on just the one side and self fabric scrunchie center front and back.
This ear warmer I made for my hubby to wear under his bike helmet. I added manly feather designs on either side from the center.
It is made with 100% cotton interlock fabric and of course cotton batting inside.
Instead of scrunchies I hand scrunched the fabric lightly and hand sewed it in place.
He says it fits good under his helmet and keeps his ears warm.
“Curiosity is the essence of human existence. ‘Who are we? Where are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going?’… I don’t know. I don’t have any answers to those questions. I don’t know what’s over there around the corner. But I want to find out.” – Gene Cernan, The Last Man on the Moon
