Here are the kids getting ready:
|See those bright blue mitts in the bottom right corner. I knit those a few years ago, but those are not the mitts of today's post.|
I did some Christmas sewing and had some fleece leftovers, so I thought I'd check around the net and see if any free mittens patterns were available. They were! I used this pattern and instructions and was very happy with the mitts I made today.
I made lizard (or maybe gecko?) mitts for Mark. Here are his hands wearing them.
They are fully lined with some other fleece I used some time ago.
|More fleece inside! Double layer is warmer.|
|Leftover fabric. Neat lizards. Pattern pieces from printout underneath.|
|Two mitts = one hand. Cuffs sewn together, then ram-jam lining into main mitt.|
That was today's sewing. Stay tuned for more.
