These "easy on" mittens have no thumb hole to wrestle with and no left or right to confuses. Cute monsters keep kids warm and they are fun enough to keep on! The difficulty on this project is Advanced beginner but if you are just starting out polar fleece is very forgiving fabric to work with.  I have made the patten in 3 sizes;  small is baby size, medium is toddler, and large is young child. I'm sure you could size it larger with no problem. This project cost less than $5 and I was able to make several pair. 

Step 1:

What you will need

Sewing machine
Fabric marking tool
1/4 yard polar fleece
1/4 yard ribbed knit
Embellishments- like Rickrack , ribbon,  felt, snaps or buttons
These are delightful! How do you think it would be if you made a tongue with a buttonhole/snap/Velcro or some such affixed so they could be attached to a "mitten leash" at the sleeve? Or, maybe just a mitten collar to attach to the mitten sleeve? (I have lost two different gloves this year already, so this is on my mind.) :)
I love that they are like puppets too! Great job! :)
Cute mittens, how fun!
These are so cute! When I saw them I thought you need to make http://www.instructables.com/id/Monster-Hoods-Keep-warm-and-look-AWESOME-in-cold/ and wear it with the monster mittens. :) So cool well done!
they're awesome:)
Haha! So fun! Using Ric Rac for the teeth was a great idea :)
Thanks, I have a tun of it. Im always looking for ways to use it for boys.
