I love making Ear Warmer headbands, (in case you didn’t know that little fact). I think it is becoming just as addictive as making scarves! I have made a few, but one of my favorites I have made to date is the Minky Rose Ear Warmer Headband.
To get started, I used both fleece and minky rose material for this project. I just love how soft the minky is, and the camel color is beautiful.
Ear Warmer Headband
- 5″ x 22″ long minky rose material
- 5″ x 22″ off white fleece material
- sewing supplies
Step 1: Cut your fabric to the length needed. because we all have different sized heads, make sure you measure before cutting to have the correct length for YOUR head. While I measure mine at 21 1/2″, I round up to 22″ so I can account for a little room….and some thick hair!
Step 2: With right sides together, sew a straight stitch down the length of both sides about 1/4″, leaving the ends open.
Step 4: Join the ends of the headband, making a circle, and place two straight stitches join and close the ends. (since the material is fluffy, you don’t see these stitches joining the piece together.)
I have been whipping these ear warmers out all week long and am loving the fun little creations I have been coming up with. While I started out with the standard fleece ear warmer, I have had to progress and see what else I could come up with.
I am loving all of the faux fur that has been making a comeback lately, so my next headband will be one furry and warm headband! I can’t wait to share that one with you.
If you get a chance, give this cute Minky Rose Ear Warmer Headband a try! Such perfect accessories for the Winter, and surprisingly simple to make!
