This is the climate for beanie,boots,scarves .So, if you are searching for the DIY ways of keeping yourself warm this season then you have reached the perfect place.In this instructable we are going to see how to make a faux fur ear muffs.
Step 1: Materials Required
- Faux fur less than quarter yard( I got quarter yard just in case if I want to make many )
- Sewing needle
- Thread -Matching color to the furHead band (I got mine at dollar store)
- Glue gun
- A piece of felt (optional)
- Poly fill stuffing
- Marking chalk
Cut a oval template of your desired size in a cardboard. (Make sure the size covers your ears ;).Lol,That is the ultimate aim of this instructable;P).With the template , trace 4 ovals on the wrong side of the fur and cut it.
Wear the headband and mark where you want the muffs to start approximately . Glue that point on to the wrong side of a oval fur with glue gun. Cut a piece of felt and glue that above the headband for extra security.
Take another piece of fur and place it right side facing together. Thread the needle and start stitching blanket stitch all around leaving a small gap.Turn it inside out so that wrong sides face each other.If you want to know how to make blanket stitch,click here. you can also use glue gun to join the pieces but it was kind of messy and I did not get the right shape when I tried. But if you are comfortable you can go ahead with glue gun.
Now, if you want the ear muffs to be fluffy , add some poly fill stuffing and close the remaining with the blanket stitch.Repeat the same for the other side.And that's it.You are done! If you don't want the fluffiness, you can simply close the stitch without adding the filling. It is up to you. :)I have shown you how it looks with and without stuffing.So, it will be easy for you to decide.
