How To Make Mittens From Old Jumpers


Creme De La Craft demonstrate how to make mittens from an old jumper.  This is a very quick and simple upcycling project that can be hand sewn so there’s no need for a sewing machine.

I like the addition of the embellishments, the contrasting stitches and button give the mittens a nice playful look!
