Thursday Tutorial!! Mittens!!!

Starting from the bottom, first is the pattern you can right click and save it or just draw it yourself- it is 7 inches long and 4 1/2 at the widest thumb part. the next is cutting it out of the fabric, I used fleece for the red one and batting for the second one. Add a 1 1/2 inch piece to the top of the mitten on each piece and sew together with a 1/4 inch seam, turn and clip by thumb. Turn cuff to inside and gather the top about an inch down. Gather by hand and pull a little tight. Add ribbon . lace , buttons, a charm and spray a little spray glue on the bottom and sprinkle with glitter. The other mitten made of warm and natural batting is cut with pinkihg shears, sewn and not turned and added embellishments. Use tiny clothespins to hang from a ribbon for a swag or use on a wreath or pkg decoration. They are so cute and sparkley, If you like a more traditional look then just do a ribbon and not the the other embellishments. They will be cute on a string or two together on a wreath or swag. Two on a ribbon or jute.Hope you like it and if you need my help just e-mail me.
