Welcome visitors who are hopping over from The Train to Crazy! (That is possibly the best blog name ever!) I hope you will poke around a little and be inspired to make at least one handmade gift this holiday season. If you are a twelve crafts' reader, check out The Train to Crazy because Andrea is hosting Make it for Winter this entire month.
Winter's coming . . . I'm hoping it's not coming soon though! Of course, you know that I've been preparing for winter for a while now with this:
With the help of some old sweaters, I'm adding a few ear warmers to our winter stash. Add a little hook and loop to these and all the girls in our family (including this big girl) can wear the exact same ear warmers. Woo hoo! More options for all of us!
Adjustable Ear warmers
Here's what you need for the ear warmer:
~an old sweater or some fleece
~2 pieces of 2 to 3 inches of hook and loop
Here's what you need for the removable flower:
~various sizes of circles cut out from the sweater, fleece of other fabric
~follow this tutorial
Here's what you do for the adjustable ear warmer:
1) Measure around the head of the largest head you want these to fit and cut that length by 6 inches wide from the sweater.
2) Pin on one side of the two strips of hook and loop to the right side of the ear warmer about an inch from the long edge and the short edge. Pin the other side of the hook and loop strips to the diagonal corner. Sew strips on.
