DIY – Mittens
I went to a craft show and seen mittens made from old sweaters. I was so excited I went home that night and searched for a DIY on Pinterest and YouTube. Can I just tell you I love the internet. If you want to learn anything, search the internet and you will find it.
Back to my mittens, when I say easy, this is a beginners project. You will have completed mittens within 2 hours. Yes, from start to finish, done, ready to wear. The pattern is only 3 pieces.
I went to the Goodwill and found a wool sweater for $3.00. You can use a heavy knit but I prefer using a wool sweater. For the lining I used fleece pj shorts.
I looked at several YouTubes and Pins on Pinterest but the best one for me was Sandy Luft-Schafer. I liked Sandy video best because it was easy to follow and she included the pattern.
- Wool sweater
- fleece material (old pj, shorts)
- straight pins
