With the cold weather here, it’s time to keep our ears from freezing off in the wind and elements. To help, I am sharing a simple sewing pattern for a DIY Ear Warmer Headband.
One of the things I love about my sewing machine is that it has an embroidery option. Before I got started with this tutorial, I took my fleece material and made some monograms, initials, and names for the ear warmer headbands. Once I had that embroidery finished, it was time to get started.
Even if you don’t have an embroidery machine, there are so many fun options you can do with these ear warmers. I have seen flowers, and bows. They are so cute, and what a fun and warm accessory to have on hand while you are out and about in this cold weather.
DIY Ear Warmer Headband
- sewing machine and accessories
- 2 pieces of fleece cut at 5″ wide and 22″ long.
Once you have your fleece cut to 22″ x 5″, you will then take a pair of scissors a 4″ long angle on each side, leaving 2 1/2 inches at each end. Take a look at the pattern below.
Now take your two pieces of fleece and place them RIGHT SIDES together. Pin in place.
Sew a straight stitch down both sides of the fleece, leaving your ends open.
Once you have your sides sewn together, turn your headband right sides out by inserting a finger in the end and pulling the other end through and out.
After you have your band right sides out, place one end of the band into the other. Sew a zig zag stitch down the middle of the ends and you are finished!
I can’t wait to make more of these with maybe a few matching scarves….you know how I love my scarves…
I hope you give this little tutorial a try and make a DIY Ear Warmer Headband to keep yourself fashionably toasty this winter.
