One of these days I forgot my gloves... it is cold outside... and I am always going by bike. Without gloves not a nice experience! So I just needed something to replace them now.
I was just back at home, it was late in the evening but I wanted to meet with friends just a little bit later that day. Therefor this quick version of some mittens :)
I had some "Walkloden" (some kind of felt, loden) left which I used.
I layed my hand over the fabric and traced with a white marker around it. See: a kind of mitten! After that I sewed two layers of the fabric together. Yes, I sewed before I cut the fabric! This way it is a lot easier to avoid the fabric to slide. Also a good method if you are sewing very tiny and complicated parts ^^
I cut it out... You don't have to secure the ends of loden!
...and turned it around.
The fit well and are very, extremly warm!
But next time maybe longer at the end :)
Saved my hands!
And even if I did find my gloves...
I am still using the mittens on my bike if it is getting really cold and / or wet :)
