I hope this is in the right place... earmuffs are considered clothing, right?

Anyways...

These were earmuffs. Now they are headphones. Why? Because earbuds hurt my ears. So do big heavy headphones. And it's hard to find stuff to fit over my dreads.



I used a seam ripper to open the bottom of the earmuff and pulled the inner section of stuffing out.



I used craft wire to hold the earbud in place and then I taped it. I don't think the wire is necessary, but since I only had two hands it helped keep things together while I taped.




I stuffed the padding back in and made my boyfriend sew it shut because I haven't learned how to hand sew yet. I can only use a machine.



Action shot? Sure!

Ok this is an AWEsome idea, I have the same comfort problems as you-- I can use the tiny earbuds but they tend to pop off and get lost forever.
 But I'm confused.. in the tute it looks like the buds go inside the muffs, but in the action shots they appear to be outside and above the muffs?

Nope that's a shell that I used as a dread bead.

Yep! I can hear just perfect. Remember, sound travels through solid mass better than air. And it's only a little tuft of padding.

I am doing this tonight! I'm going on a trip soon where it will be colder than what I'm used to so this will be perfect! I'm also with you on the fact that the tiny ear buds hurt my ears!
Clarie's had buy one get one free on ear muffs, leg warmers, hats, mittens, etc.!
I found Hello Kitty ones!
