I made mine with fleece and then embellished with some jersey scraps and buttons I had around.
First, I traced my hand, adding about 1/2 inch all the way around.
I outlined a pattern with marker. You want to leave extra at the top of the finger and thumb part since it's going to get folded over and sewn. I made one set just leaving the raw edges and though it looks okay, it doesn't hold up well over time.
Fleece definitely has a right and wrong side and one way stretches more. So make sure you figure out which side is the right side and how it stretches.
Fold the fleece in half and cut 2 pieces for each mitten. Sorry about the pink background, taking photos at night is tough!
Fold the top of the finger portion and thumb portion 1/4 inch to the wrong side and sew with a wide zig zag so that the seam will stretch.
If you want to embellish, do it now! Make sure you do the mirror image halves of the set.
Put the front and back together (1 embellished piece with 1 plain piece) and sew as shown. Don't sew across the top or the thumb piece for obvious reasons :)
There you have it! A cute pair of fingerless mittens!
Let me know what you come up with!
