I love to have fun with paper, food, paint, music and events and just being creative in all of it. However, I don't feel the need to be a perfectionist nor a professional in any of my creations. I wish I could have a blog JUST about the art of cooking, photography, sewing, art, mothering, jewelry making, card making, dancing, gardening, deep spiritual thoughts, decorating, poetry, party planning, baking.... and the list goes on but I can't. I don't think I was created with the ability to focus on one task. I like all of these hobbies layed out before me and the freedom to pick whatever I choose depending on the mood or time I have.

No knitting Anthro Knock off Ear Warmer Headband

I just love Fall outdoor Artisan Markets!  I was out on a date with my hubby and we came across an outdoor craft market and all of the colors on the tables displaying their work lured me in.  One table had some cute little knit hats and ear warmers and it reminded me of my unfinished project list from last year on that list #44 Ear Warmer Headband.

I got right to making my easy NO KNITTING Fashionable Ear Warmer Headband project so I can scratch it off my list.  I admire those who can knit but this girl has NO knitting skills. Anthropologie had a similar headband but it was knitted.

What you need:
thread & needle

See it's already so easy.

Cut your piece of fleece the width you want the headband. Yay, I got to use my Fiskar cutter for the first time! Mine was about 4.5 inches wide.  Since fleece is so wonderfully stretchy this works great for a headband.  Wrap the piece of fleece around your head to figure out where to cut.
Then sew the 2 long ends together.

Hemming is not needed since fleece doesn't fray but if you are in the mood pull out that sewing maching and have at it.

I cut a long piece of fleece about an inch wide to make my flower.  Roll and sew as you go so it stays in place.  You can also just cut out flowers in different sizes and stack them up on each other like this here.
