Okay I think I discovered the best handmade gift ever. Not only is it super cheap to make but also quick and easy.
While in NY for Thanksgiving my sisters and I were talking about our knit ear warmers and how although they were super cute, they didn't always do the best job of keeping our ears warm. That's when I thought of Delia's ear warmer tutorial and thought I should give fleece a try.
I was totally inspired by Delia, but made mine a little differently. I doubled up my fleece and simply sewed the two pieces together, leaving the edges raw. I added two buttons so it could be adjusted and rounded the ends.
I love how they turned out. Cute but also toasty warm.
I stuck with rosettes, because they were quick and easy, but I can't wait to try some other designs.
These would make great gifts for your sisters, girlfriends, teachers, and co-workers. They only cost me about $1.25 each (I bought my fleece at 50% off) and they only took about 20 minutes each to make.
