Learn how to make a warm gift with this free ear warmer sewing pattern. This beginner sewing project is comfortable because of the shaping.
I dislike having cold ears when I’m out playing in the snow or walking the dog, so I made some warm shaped ear warmers with my new free ear warmer sewing pattern.
This ear warmer sewing pattern works with lots of different fabrics, the shaped curve perfectly covers the ears, and it can be finished three different ways.
– Medium weight knit fabric – Lightweight knit fabric – 1 inch button or plastic snaps – Sewing tools – Sewing machine
Cut out one ear warmer piece from the medium weight 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.
