Weekend Sewing: Mittens!

Back when our Girl Scout unit had a collection for Hurricane Sandy victims (about 2 months ago) my whole family gave something. I was very proud of my kids, they all gave right from their wardrobes, which included almost all of our spare gloves. We figured they all needed them more than us. Once it snowed though, playing outside didn’t last long with only one round of soggy gloves! 

Fleece scraps to the rescue! I literally whipped up a few pairs within minutes and today I made a few more (secretly hoping it would snow again!). I made my own pattern similar to the free one you can find here.

These are double layered fleece, perfect for playing in the snow. They didn’t even get soggy!

Here is the first pair I made. These are very long, no worries about them popping out of sleeves and Willow refused to let me finish them!

And here is a finished pair from earlier today:

Instead of turning them out, like in the tutorial I linked above, I finished these with FOE (my favorite!). I also added a little elastic to underside near the wrist.

No pictures pleeeese! haha

Super easy and quick project perfect for fleece scraps! They are soft and toasty warm, perfect for snowy days!

Happy sewing all! Stay warm!
