You don’t just want to throw out perfectly still usable headphones and God forbid replace them with those hideous ear buds, so there fore you make some replacements your self. Difficulty is medium to a bit fidgety in making these.
Not for young children and impatient adults. They would probably get frustrated anyhow.
What you’ll need:
Some scraps of soft material any colour, some thread to sew with, a needle, an elastic (the kinds you use for clothing), some kinds of foam (I recommend the kind you use for air filtering is best), scissors, measuring tape, pins and of course the headphones.
Step 1: Measuring and Cutting
Make two of these.
Then measure out two circles of material approximately the same width as they are on the headphones.
Before you cut those shapes out you just made, make sure you leave at least 1 half inch of seam allowance all around your shapes. This is important for sewing together.
Also, measure and cut two circles of the foam, like you made earlier at the same size as the ones made out of material. Then measure out two pieces of elastic the same length as the strips of material. Make a little seam on those things as well.
Step 2: Pin Those Shapes
Pair and pin those circles of materials and foam together as well on there ugly sides on to the seams.
Step 3: Sew Those Shapes
Then fold over, pin and then sew the seam making sure it now covers the elastic. Don’t sew on to where the elastic is or it won’t be as stretchy.
Also sew up those pined circles to their foam pieces.
Step 4: Pin Those Things Together
Please note; that in the process of putting these together I realized that my long pieces were not long enough so I had to cut new long pieces and that’s why these long pieces are blue.
Step 5: Sew It Up and Wrap It Up
Step 6: Try Them Out
Decorate them if desired.
