We've got a little cold snap going here in SC. My main issue is little cold hands and feet! Tonight, I whipped up a couple pairs of baby mittens, the kind without a thumb that just slide on, hopefully not being pulled off, but probably pulled off. Whatever the odds, I want to TRY to keep those little baby fingers from turning to ice. I thought I would make a little tutorial for you to try out, too.
You will need:
-Some fleece (use some scraps or 1/4 of a yard will do)
-some 1/4 inch elastic, 12 inches (2 pieces 6 inches in length)
I decided to personalize mine first. If you have an embroidery machine, then go ahead and do these 2 steps first. If not, then skip down below to where it says SEWING. I used fleece, so I didn't line them, but if you want to line them, you can just cut out your outer fabric as you are going along and make sure to sew those pieces together and turn right sides out before following the rest of the tutorial.
Put Fabric on Hoop with stabilizer underneath.
Turn right side out and you have mittens!
Email me and I will make some for you for about $10 + $2 shipping. Pink or Grey as shown. Your choice of letter and font.
