This past weekend it snowed for three days, and we got two feet of snow! I haven’t seen this much snow at one time since I was six. With all the snow, Henry needed some mittens to keep his hands warm so that he could play in the snow.
2. Cut out four mitten pieces, two vinyl pieces, and two ribbing pieces on the fold.
3. Sew the vinyl piece onto the center of the mitten. I sewed a little design for fun.
4. With right sides together sew each mitten around at .5″. Trim, clip, and notch edges.
5. Turn right side out.
6. Sew the ribbing on the long side at .5″. With right sides together pin and sew ribbing to mittens.
Optional: Measure you child from arm across the back and down the other arm. Add a couple inches. Cut twill tape to this length.
Fold ends over twice and sew across.
Sew to the outside top of the mittens. Now your child will not lose the wonderful mittens you just made for them!
You can add twill tape to any gloves to keep them from getting lost.
Happy warm fingers!
