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!
The materials and equipment that you’ll need to make your upcycled mittens are shown below.
- Old jumper / sweater
- Thread (one to match and one contrasting)
- Button (optional embellishment)
- Marker pen / chalk
