My son bolts out of bed everyday (that includes weekends too) and says, “Let’s get the day started.” He looks forward to everyday, playing, drawing and building. Even though I forget, I’m reminded to have fun everyday. Wishing you all a year full of curiosity and wonder.
Here’s a simple way to make some mittens for your wee little ones. These red ones were hand-me downs for when my son was afew months old. I thought it was such a great idea that I made a few larger versions until he was 18 months. It doesn’t take much fabric and old polarfleece shirts are perfect for this project.
What you will need:
- polarfleece fabric (enough fabric to cover your baby’s hand)
- decorative ribbon or string
- optional – windstop fabric
Step 1: Trace the shape of your babies hand. Cut 4 mitten pieces. Cut 2 cuff pieces that is twice the width of the opening. Use some warm and cosy polarfleece. I doubled mine with a thin layer of windstop fabric.
Step 2: Sew or serge the edges of the mittens. Sew the cuff, fold over and attach to the base of the mitten. I also attached some string so that it could be threaded through your babies snowsuit. Stay warm!
