I HATE being cold as I have a hard time warming back up. I'm one of those who would rather be hot than cold any day!
The weather here is starting to get cold and winter is right around the corner. Boo....at least I can cheer myself up with new mittens! I made these from an old sweater that I already recycled into a pillow. I kept the sleeve for later projects. Mittens!
It was really simple and fast to do. Here's my little tutorial.
Start off by tracing your hand and about two inches of you wrist. Round the upper edges to be even and match. Then cut it out.
Grab your sleeve.
With sleeve turned inside out lay your template down and pin in place.
Notice what I've done with the thumb. I cut a deeper slit down and folded the thumb in just a little.
Here is the thumb folded and pinned so you can see what I meant. Note: you will cut down into the deeper slit.
Pin sides and stitch closed.
