DIY Upcycled mittens

There is something so satisfying about making something from stuff that is unloved, unused. And not only that – the new thing is even cuter than the original one! I stumbled upon descriptions for mittens made from old sweaters (google mitten sweaters, or check out pinterest or youtube for instructions – there are both videos and patterns to download), and I just had to try them. I used old cross stitch paintings for both pairs of mittens. The mittens are lined with fabric from an old fleece blanket and the cuff is made from an old sweater.

So fun to make, and so addictive!

I have a feeling we’ll all be wearing cute upcycled mittens before this winter is over!
