– Sweater to cut up – Sewing tools – Sewing machine
Start with a sweater that can be cut up. You can choose a solid print, or a bright design. Try to avoid sweaters that have really loose weaves or open holes.
Place your hand on the sleeve. The cuff of the sweater will match up with the smallest part of your wrist. You want the cuff to be tight around your arm.
Draw a mitten shape onto the sweater. Draw in 1/2 inch seam allowance. Do the same on the other sleeve. Cut out the mitten shape from both sleeves.
