Mittens for Little Elves {upcycle!}

What You Get

  • 1 digital pattern (instant download)
  • Free Pattern Updates


Three little elves have lost their mittens and can't go out and play! This is an upcycling pattern! If you would rather sew than knit (like me) and you've noticed that high quality wool sweater knit fabric is hard to come by - then just take a look in the back of your kids closets or on the racks of your favorite thrift store until you find a nice wool or wool blend sweater. You'll probably be able to make 2 pairs of mittens from one sweater. This download is for the pattern piece only. Please visit my blog post for step by step instructions with pictures. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Sewing SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Children's S/M/L and adult womens

My name is Caroline and I want to inspire you to sew by showing you something beautiful every day. I have four children and a room full of fabric. Sewing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Since I started having kids most of my sewing is for them and our home. For years now my browser's bookmark files have been filling up with project ideas that I need to try. It's helpful because people often ask me if I know how they can make such-and-such, and I tell them I'll just go home and email you the link to a tutorial. Well, now I get to share those tutorials with anyone who will look (or sign up for my newsletter). If you follow along with us on She Sews! the SewCanShe blog, we'll explore new tricks and techniques and show off our work every Saturday in our linky party.
