About This Class

Learn how to make the coziest pair of mittens ever, using upcycled wool sweaters. These mittens were designed to hug your hands with warmth and comfort and are long enough for optimal wrist coverage.

This is a fun sewing project that sews up quickly and is easy enough for a beginner seamstress.

You will learn how to measure your hands to get the correct size. There are 7 different sizes in the downloadable PDF pattern, that is included with class enrollment.

You can download the pattern by clicking on the "your project" tab. To the right you will see "attached files" click on that to download instantly. Have fun sewing and let me know if you have any further questions.

Make up a pair for yourself and then some for your friends and family!

All you will need for this project is:

  • Sewing machine
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors (paper and fabric)
  • Pins
  • Safety pins
  • Upcycled felted wool sweaters, polar fleece, or mix blend sweaters
  • Fleece or thin sweater for lining
