Hey all. Good Morning and Happy New Year! I know I’m like a whole week late on that, but it’s been busy ’round these parts. I’ve been cleaning and clearing and decluttering and goal setting and trying my darndest to help make this year a heaping lot better than last. So far, so good.
So. If you’re finding me through Good Things Utah … thanks for coming! I’m so glad you stopped by. Feel free to take your time and look around, sign up for the post feed, or check out some of my other DIY tutorials and crafty ideas. Or you could browse through my photos or favorite posts. If you’re interested in getting the patterns for the other projects featured in today’s segment, just sign up on the mailing list (over there on the right) and an email will be sent out next week with all the instructions.
OH! And if you would like to purchase any of the fleece flower pin embellishments featured on today’s projects, they’re on sale in the shop for a squealin’ deal. Seriously. Squealin’. And they look so stinkin’ cute on hats, sweaters, handbags, headbands, etc. You can totally change it up!
p.s. a little bird told me there are some really great illustrations (1 & 2) for sale in that shop too. And a custom pendant that was featured in Nie Nie’s Handmade Christmas Gift Guide. You should check those out too.
Now. On to the Easy Fleecey Mittens!
1. Trace your hand (with fingers closed and thumb extended) onto a piece of paper.
2. Use the traced hand as a guide to draw your pattern. Be sure to leave 1/4″ around all sides for the seam and about 1″ at the bottom so that it extends past the wrist when worn. *Also be sure that the opening is large enough to slide a hand in.
3. Cut out 4 pieces of fleece, using the pattern you just made.
4. With wrong sides together, pin 2 fleece pieces together and sew around the edge, leaving the hand opening open.
5. Fold the opening down (towards inside of mitten) 1/4″ and sew close to edge.
6. Turn right side out.
7. Embellish and enjoy!
*Optional step: If the wrist opening is too large and drafty, you can easily add a piece of elastic. Simply increase the fold over in Step 5 to a 1/2″. Sew close to edge, but leave a 1″ opening to insert elastic (cut to wrist size). Sew ends of elastic together and then sew the 1″ opening in seam closed).
