Step 1: The Pattern
To cut a pattern I highly reccomend a rotery cutter they are amazing. However they need a good surface to cut against and then you are buying stuff and there goes the budget. If you are going to get into fashion buy a cutting mat like the one in the pictures and a rotary cutter and you will never be sorry!
Place a heavy weight on the pattern piece and carefully cut around the paper pattern trying not to pull the material out from underneath or move the pattern piece.
Step 2: Sewing
Since there are two layers to our mitten pattern we decided to make the outer layer with the seams in and the inner layer with the seams out. What this means is you sew both layers inside out and only the outer layer gets flipped, then you put the inside in and hem up the cuff. This is where we used the decorative blanket stitch.
If your mittens are too large it is easy to fix it, make a note of where and stitch inside the original stitch. If they are too small try stretching them out a little maybe iron them, still too small start a new pair and give them to a friend with smaller hands:-)
