recycled wool mittens for toddlers!

Ooh, I'm so excited! For about a week, I collected all the tiny mittens I could find around the house, in hopes of designing a pattern to make more. Then I found this, and headed right into my studio to make some. Thank you so much, Amanda from kitschy coo for the pattern and instruction! I printed them out in a few sizes. Instead of fleece, I used felted wool sweaters, adding a tree on one and a cardinal on the other. And then I made two more pairs, one of them lined with thermal fabric from a shirt! They are pretty snug, so in the future, I think I'll just put elastic on the inside.

Awesome mittens! FYI... the link goes to some baby t-shirts.

Oooo, I love them! What a great idea to use sweaters, I like them more than the fleece!
