It is starting to get cold so I thought I would create this reversible fleece ear warmer for you today. This is a super simple beginner sewing project that anyone with basic sewing skills can make in no time. There is a free pattern that comes with this ear warmer tutorial so you do not have to look high and low for one. You can adjust the size to make it larger or smaller if you like. Either way it is an easy project to keep your ears warm this winter. If you would like a really warm hooded infinity scarf check out my post here or my fleece flap hat.
I used fleece for my ear warmer today. This project requires just a little fabric so I purchased two fleece remnants at JOANN Fabric & Craft Stores. you could use one if you like. I wanted mine to be reversible so I chose two different fabrics. Remnants are really all you need for the project but you could always head to Amazon Fabric shop or onlinefabricstore.net to get what you need.

What you will Need: How to Make an Ear Warmer
- Pattern you can get by clicking on this link
- 1/4 yd outer fleece fabirc
- 1/4 yd lining fleece fabric
- Standard sewing supplies.
Step 1: Cut out your Ear Warmer Fabrics
Tape the pattern Pieces together. Using the pattern piece cut one piece of outer and one piece of lining fabric on the fold.
Step 2: Stitch the Long Sides
With right sides together stitch the long ends of the outer fabric to the lining fabric starting 1″ from the end and finishing 1″ from the end.
Step 3: Turn Right Sides Out
Turn the ear warmer right sides out through the opening you left.
Step 4: Stitch the Short Ends Together
Place the lining fabric ends right sides together and stitch using a 1/2″ seam allowance. Then, place the outer ends right sides together and stitch them using a 1/2′ seam allowance. Pull taught. There will be an opening on either side of the short ends.
Step 5: Close the Opening in the Ear Warmer
I would recommend that you use ladder stitch to close the openings. you could topstitch all the way around but I did not really like the finished product as much. You have now finished the fleece ear warmer.
