Sing with me: On the first day of Christmas Hertoolbelt sent to you, a pair of mittens for a little wooden tree.
For each day of Christmas I’ll be posting an ornament for a cute wooden wall Christmas Tree (knock off from West Elm)
My friend, Jenny Frame has been making these wool sweater mittens for years. She was featured on a local TV show Studio 5. She also makes super cool ear muffs; you can see them at her store on etsy, capoandstubs.
The pattern for these mini mittens is her pattern, just a whole lot smaller. Although you will probably want to make yourself a pair of the full size mittens too. Just follow the studio 5 link to her pattern. The mittens turn out really fun if you use varying and complimentary materials. I made these mittens out of old recycled wool sweaters, but feel free to substitute with whatever you have on hand, felt, or scrap material. I also hand stitched mine, I’m not so great with a sewing machine. You seamstresses could have these whipped out in 30 minutes. Here are the instructions: mini mitten pattern according to Jenny.
