Learn how to make a gift for kids with a free ear warmer sewing pattern. This beginner sewing project is comfortable because of the shaping.
– medium weight knit fabric with at least 25% stretch like sweatshirting, French terry, or polar fleece – lightweight knit like cotton spandex or rayon jersey spandex for the lining
Cut out one ear warmer piece from the heavier outer knit fabric. Match the stretch lines. Cut out one ear warmer lining from the lightweight knit fabric.
With right sides together match up the two long sides. Match up the curved shape. The lining is thinner than the ear warmer so you have to be very careful about lining up the edges.
Sew both long sides with a 3/8 inch seam allowance with either a zigzag stitch or a serger. The ear warmer curves towards the lining because the lining is smaller.
