This sewing basics series was created in collaboration with Missy Creed of Momentum Fashion. Missy is a talented seamstress who sews for Red Velvet!
After we finished making the snow hat, I begged Missy to teach me to make a pair of warm winter mittens!
Follow these instructions and tips to stitch the perfect pair of mittens from a sweater! The only "trick" is to open your thumb a little (so that it's not close to your other fingers) when chalking the line to stitch. This will make your new mittens more roomy and comfy!
These mittens were easy as pie to stitch up! I want to make them in every color. Now I have another reason to collect sweaters!
Practice makes perfect! Try sewing as many knitted pieces as you can. I loved making these and the stocking cap too. XO. elsie
