I started out on my earwarmer quest, inspired by the beautiful ones over at Delia Creates. Sometimes, you don't quite need a hat. An earwarmer is a fun way to add a pop of color and stay warm.
Using Delia's as my inspiration, I came up with a slightly different way of putting it together. And, I made a downloadable pattern too.
Download pattern HERE.
All you need is some fleece and thread.
Download and print the pattern. Place the marked edge on the fold of the fabric and cut. Be sure to pay attention to which way the fabric stretches the most, and lay your pattern down with the direction of stretch. You'll need 2 pieces cut this way.
A note on sizing; the pattern is sized for my child-sized head and fits my 7 year old well. Yes, I do have a very small head! However, if you want make it bigger, all you have to do is slide the pattern over from the fold and cut it a bit larger.
You should have 2 pieces of fleece that look like this.
With right sides together, sew along the 2 long edges, leaving the shorter sides open.
Turn right side out.
Match the shorter sides and sew with a 1/2 inch seam allowance.
Try it on and make sure the fit is good.
So easy, you can make one for every day of week.
What style will you make?
