Ear Warmer project

Monday, November 26, 2012 0 No tags Permalink

As I was making an earwarmer for my friend when she takes her dog out on walks, I needed to make one to experiment with first. In hers, there’s a feather detail that is supposed to sit just off center to the right. I went with basic for mine, as the test model.

I found the idea on a website that only used one piece of fabric and just folded the edges over, leaving the part next to the head raw and unfinished. I decided to instead sew together two pieces, turn them inside out and top-stitch the edges. I thought it would look cleaner/more professional and also be warmer with a double-layer of fleece.

Fleece won’t fray, so you don’t have to double-sew a button hole. I thought about using velcro as a close instead of a button, but I have an extraordinarily small, grapefruit-sized head which will take care of that side of things. Any fattie-headed folks can rest assured that the fleece will stretch quite a bit to go over your watermelon noggin’.

“Look at the size of that boy’s head. It’s like an orange on a toothpick. No kidding. His head’s like Sputnik. Spherical, but quite pointy in parts.  Tonight he’ll cry himself to sleep… on his huge pillow! Heed! Paper! Now! Move that melon of yours and get the paper if you can, hauling that gargantuan cranium about!”

Not the best picture, but you get the idea.
