One of my goals for 2011 is to make gifts for people, not buy them. I made slippers as a present for my mother in law (her b-day is on the 18th). I wanted to make her something else too, so when she asked for an ear warmer, I just couldn't resist. I made her two, because the pattern was easy and quick.

The ear warmers:

Here's the pattern I used for the ear warmers: http://daperfectmix.blogspot.com/2010/10/easy-head-warmer-pattern.html

Thanks! I'm sure she'll love them. I'm fortunate, my in-laws are very appreciative of hand made gifts.
