Earmuffs Tutorial

It's not a secret that I have a lot of hair.
Don't get me wrong....I love my hair, but when you have a lot of hair, hats are out of the question.

I've tried lots of different options when it comes to winter head wear, but most don't fit well, or leave me with lots of smashed curls. After finding earmuffs at the donation center for $1.00, 
I decided to try earmuffs.
You want to make some for yourself?
So easy and inexpensive.
All you need is some scrap faux fur (mine was about $2.00)
and a set of earmuffs.

Tools you need:
sewing machine
seam ripper
 Take apart the old earmuffs...

and use your seam-ripper to take off the old elastic,
but be careful because you are going to re-use the elastic
 When you are done put the old fabric circles down on your new fabric and mark it.
 Cut out your circles.
 Now you are ready to re-assemble.
 Pin your elastic to your new fabric and then stretch it out as much as you can. Hold in place and stitch about an inch.
Then stop, and stretch out the elastic again and repeat.
Continue this way until you are all the way around the circle.
  Reassemble your muffs with the new fabric.

 And you are done!
 $3.00 + 30 minutes = warm ears.
Or a cute, inexpensive gift!
