ltts sew along: mittens

I knew I didn't have time to make the puppet theater this month for the oliver + s sew along, but I didn't want to break my streak of participating each month, so I made the mittens. I finished one mitten last night and the other one this morning, so at least half the project was completed in November!


A nice quick project with cute results! I made the small size, but they're still a tad big on my 2.5 year old. It was a cheap project too because I used some fleece I already had (although it's not the best quality, so I don't know how well it will hold up in the long run). I used one of my machine's decorative stitches to finish off the cuffs, although I doubt you can see it in the photos.


I used ribbon for the elastic casing instead of bias tape. I have a ton of ribbon, but rarely find myself using it, so it was nice to find a project for it!


Kudos to those that actually made the puppet theater!


  1. I like the ribbon against the white fleece! Makes it stand out.:)

  2. Cute! I like the ribbon, too... nice idea!

  3. Great combo of the colors. They look so cozy and pretty.

  4. the ribbon in the perfect touch. These need to be in every kid's stocking :)

  5. Very Cute! Love the pop of color on the ribbon. I too am gonna make these in a white with a ribbon. Did you use a satin or grosgrain?

  6. very sweet! It looks like she loves them. I need to try this project soon!
