Ear Warmers...simplified tutorial It’s been getting brisk around here so I made a couple more ear warmers. This is one {below} that was inspired by a church talk that’s been on my mind a lot lately…found here. With little Forget Me Nots peppered up the side. I’ll admit. I so badly wanted this one to turn out better than it did. I felt a bit limited by the fleece colors available at three different fabric stores. I also made this yellow one. I know the bow is a bit – um – big and ostentatious, but I can’t help but like it. :) These ear warmers are VERY simple and so cozy warm. So, I figured now was a good time to share the tutorial again…simplified. Here goes… You can use an old wool sweater that has been shrunk a few too many times (felted) but fleece is inexpensive and cinch to use as well. A quarter yard of fleece is enough to make two adult ear warmers depending on how much embellishing you want to do. I finally got around to making a paper pattern as you see here. Cut your ear warmer out in the shape you desire. P.S.
