I've always loved the way ear muffs look. It's a feminine innocent feel AND they keep your ears crazy warm.
J.Crew has the BEST earmuffs. Unfortunately they are about $98. What?! Yeah. Crazy. BUT I found these earmuffs at the Community Aide store for $1. I took it home and removed the fur. Turns out it's just an oval piece of fabric lined with elastic. Looked easy enough. So I traced the original piece around a faux fur fabric I cut from an old coat.
I forgot to take a before photo but they looked exactly like these. See full tutorial below.
But the really neat part about this is that you don't need to buy new ear muffs for different looks. Since the fur simply slips on like a sock you can make a couple of these in different colors or patterns. Try tartan. Love that look. Or hey, a Strawberry Shortcake fleece design for your daughter!
One more thing, I totally forgot about TST was today! So instead of squeezing in the post at 7pm I'll save it for tomorrow morning and then post my new at noon.
1. Place original earmuff fur on your new fur.
2. Cut out about 1/2" extra around.
3. Cut a piece of elastic 9.5".
4. Sew elastic to right side of fur.
5. Slip on plastic.
