New! Men's or Large Adult Size Kit! We are selling kits for making your own warm, one of a kind mittens made from re-purposed felted wool sweaters with fleece lining. A kit contains everything you will need to sew one pair of mittens except the threads and elastic. This is an easy project for someone who has previous experience with a sewing machine or hand sewing. The mittens take about an hour to 90 minutes to complete.
A kit contains 13 or 14 cut out pieces to make a completed pair of cuffed mittens. ( The cuff may be in one long ribbing piece or two.) Mittens are cut out for one size fits most. Sew your mittens and linings with your sewing machine (or by hand if you do not have a sewing machine.) Directions are given to alter or customize your future mittens. You can make your mittens cuffed or without cuffs. Directions are given for adding elastic at the wrist.
A pdf file with illustrated directions will be emailed to you after purchase is complete. You can trace the three main pieces for a pattern to use in the future.
Please convo if you wish to choose from specific mittens sets we have available at the time. I will email pictures in the color family you are interested in. Most sets have pieces cut from two or three sweaters.
If you want to order more than one kit please REQUEST A CUSTOM ORDER!
Our church has a history of recycling and re-purposing items. We want to share our mitten project with a larger market. Perhaps this will help persons learn a new skill, hobby or help add to your income. Maybe you just want to make mittens for your family for Christmas or winter. Consider taking a special sweater that belonged to a loved one and make it into mittens for family. Perhaps you will make mittens for the homeless.
