Easy-Peasy Earwarmer Tutorial
The other day I found some ear-warmers on sale at Joanne's. They were so cheap, I decided to buy two; one for the base and the other to cut up for decoration.
I started by cutting one of them into three sections. I then separated one layer of the middle strip to give me one long piece.
I started stitching this onto the base, working in a circle. I wanted to make a scrunchy-looking flower, so I just kept bunching and stitching.
I kept working until I ran out of strip and reached the center. I then added a few more stitches anywhere that looked like it needed a bit more support or more bunching.
That's it! You could add more flowers if you like; there's plenty of fabric left. I liked the simple look. Don't you love my modeling picture? The ones where I was smiling all ended up blurry.
Now I have a unique new accessory and it only took $1.50 and about 10 minutes!
