How to Make Mittens for Loverscomments (5) February 5th, 2009
This is a project for the incurable romantic! Holding hands in the winter can be made more intimate with a supersized luv mitt! This custom-fit mitten set includes a single mitten for each of you plus a double-cuff mitt so you can hold your honey's hand while you are taking a stroll on a cold wintry day. If you are solo these days, just make two identical mittens for yourself and put the larger one and the love mitt away for the right person to come along.
- A firmly felted sweater (toss a 100% wool sweater into the washing machine with HOT water and wash until it shrinks considerably, then machine-dry hot)
- Straight pins
- Sewing machine
- Thread to match sweater
Step by Step
Place your hand on paper and trace around, leaving a 1/2-inch ease on all sides. Do the same for your squeeze. Cut out both templates.
After you make this project, show off your work to other members!
