Introduction: Make Mittens From Old Sweaters DIY

Let's give those shrunken, worn out sweaters a second life by turning them into warm little mittens! With just a few simple materials and the most basic hand stitch you can do, you'll have your very own handcrafted mittens in minutes! Pick a sweater with lots of pattern or add your own decor with buttons and thread.

Materials:
•  Wool sweater (at least 80% wool, but preferably 100%)
•  Marker or pen for tracing
•  Scissors
•  8-10 straight pins
•  Embroidery floss matching the color of your sweater
•  Sewing needle
• Buttons and additional embroidery floss for decorating
