My little Optimus Prime with his new mittens
December 13, 2010
I was trying to post a video of Trevor, Ethan, and me snuggling this morning (snow day!). It is still trying to load about 4 hours later, so I am changing this blog entry. Little man is short on mittens, he had a nice pair and then the first time out in the snow one went missing. I have a ton of fleece that my mom had given me, so this project didn't even put a dent in the amount of fleece I have. Quick and easy to make. All I did was trace Ethan's hand to make a pattern, then I cut out 8 pieces of fleece from that pattern (really you only need 4 pieces but I wanted them extra warm). Sew them together so you now have 4 mittens, turn two of them right side out and stuff the other two inside, last sew around the bottom. Done. I used grey and red fleece and turned the red over the grey so it would show on the outside.
