Mittens in July
Oh how I wish I didn't need these. But they worked great and I have wanted to make them for a long time. This was another project that took only a few minutes to create, yet has been on my crafting list for years. Decades maybe.
I filled the mittens with rice and hand stitched the ends closed. I didn't feel like threading a needle so I just used a needle from my pin cushion that still had a length of thread attached. Hence, the mismatched thread. Who cares about matching thread when you are in pain?
I put them in the microwave for a minute and put one on top of my head and one across my eyes. Ahhhhh, sweet relief. Sorry, no photo of that look.
I am linking to YOU:create and if you haven't read
her post from yesterday I highly recommend it. I am still mulling it over and reaping the benefits.
