This is a super fast and easy Kid Craft, The Wonder Mitten. Made from micro fiber cloth it is both durable, multi functional and kids love them. Because microfiber cloth is super soft and lint free it can be used for just about anything gentle enough to be a kids wash cloth and can do chores like dusting, washing dishes, etc, in a snap..

They clean and dry streak and scratch free and make great eyeglass cloths, TV and PC Screen Dusters, polish mirrors and chrome to a high shine. The best part is they are washable and reusable. Micro Fiber Cloths are tough, durable and long lasting which makes them frugal in the long run and they trap dust so cleaning time is cut in half..

The pattern here is for a kid sized Wonder Mitten, simply enlarge the picture including the white area to fit an 11 x 8 1/2 inch piece of paper and transfer onto card stock for tracing right on the cloth. Make it bigger to fit an adult hand.

Step 1: Materials

To Make the Wonder Mitten plus 2 Eyeglass Cloths you will need:

1 - 16 x 16 Micro Fiber Cloth (I picked up a package of 36 at Costco for about $16)
Straight Pins

Sewing Machine or Serger

What a nice idea - anything to help lose those fingerprints
Ain't it the truth Beth. Give them a pair and watch them have a ball
Hey cool, maybe I could use this to trick my daughter into enjoying cleaning . . .
You would be surprised how many kids I work with think this one is just the cats meow. The little ones especially because they get to wipe thier hands all over everything. Never a dusty TV screen thats for sure.
Oh by the way, my hand size is medium! Hint, Hint.....Cman
