Step 1: What You Need
- 16 strips of fabric
It can be and old curtain, shirts trousers etc.etc.Mine were leftovers at the local market (I've got mine for free!!)
- a scissor
- sturdy yarn
- and of course your own cold hands ;)
take 4 strips of fabric and sew the ends together.
Place the outer strips in the middle and cross them keep repeating until you have a braid and remember to leave enough at the end to connect the other strip (see step 4)
Repeat step 2 with four other strips of fabric.
Now you have two braids.
Cut off the loose ends of both braids. sew the loose ands together.
Now take the second braid and sew them together,until you have one long braid.
Start rolling up the braids to form a spiral.
figure out a which is most comfortable method for yourself.
Continue rolling and remember to leave enough braid to form a handle.
now connect the end until it forms a handle.
Repeat steps 1 to 5, with the other strips of fabric.
Instead of just the bottom with the second braid, you go all the way around with rolling up the braid.
Now lay the two spirals together. Just sew a piece at the bottom.Also at the top and leave the sides open.(just enough to be able to put you hands inside)
Step 12: The End Result
Enjoy your warm hands in the cold winter.
