Has any of my readers started to get an idea that I may have an obsession with these Ear Warmer Headbands? I mean how many posts can a girl do, right? Well I have had so much fun making these, that today I am sharing my DIY Fur Covered EarWarmer Headband Tutorial with you.
Before you freak out, this is not real fur. This is the stuff you buy at the craft store for 8.99 for a half yard, present your 40% off coupon for, and walk out of there paying $5. It’s faux fur! And it’s WARM.
DIY Fur Covered EarWarmer Headband
Here is what we are going to need for this tutorial:
- faux fur fabric (they have a lot of really cool options!)
- sewing machine (but you can hand sew this as well!)
- measuring tape
Step 1: Take a measuring tape and measure your head (just wrap it around your head). When I made my measurements, I came up with 22″ in length. Since this material is not stretchy and will be bulkier when folded over, I am cutting it at 24″. For the width I am cutting it at 7″.
Step 2: Cut your material. Because of the faux furriness of this material, it will be a little messy when cutting. Cut with the liner facing up and the fur facing down (so you can see your lines).
Step 3: After you have your material cut you will fold it in half with Right Sides (Furry Sides) together.
Step 4: Once your Right Sides (Furry Sides) are together, go ahead and place a straight stitch down the side of the band.
Step 5: Turn your fabric inside out, and put your open ends together. Place two straight stitches down the ends to made sure they will stay together.
Step 6: Try on your new Fur Covered EarWarmer Headband!
This was such a cool project. I like making these headbands, and I have made so many different ones that you can be sure I will share them all with you.
Make sure you give this DIY Fur Covered EarWarmer Headband a try! (You could always hand sew this if you don’t have a machine.) Stay tuned for more EarWarmer Headbands!
