Last week was my friend Selah's birthday!
She has a cool sense of style, so I knew I had to make her something pretty sweet! ;)
I basically used this tutorial, but I did change it up a bit.
First I cut the socks up into sections like this:
Then I cut down the side of each section so it became a long strip.
I then hemmed the piece that would become the top of the mitten, just cuz I didn't really want any raw edges.
Then I started sewing the pieces together! I sewed the long sides together, and I stitched them "ugly sides together". That way when I unfolded them, the stitching and edges would show on the outside, which I liked.
Also at this point I left a hole for the thumb.
After that I folded them inside out and sewed a long seam all along the side of the mitten. After turning it right side out, it was done!
(Sorry I don't have more pics of the process. If you're confused, check out the link. I did do it a bit differently, but you'll get the idea. :)
My friend Selah loved them! Here she is modeling them for me. :)
Enough pictures already! Yeah, I sortta took thirty some pics. I was having too much fun. :)
