You need to be careful what you wear around me. Be very, very careful. Each sweater I lay my eyes on these days becomes a potential mitten fantasy to me. While you think I’m listening to you talk about your elf on the shelf adventures, I’m most likely envisioning myself cutting up your sweater to make more SMITTENS!!!! You can’t say you haven’t been warned…
If you’re looking for the perfect DIY gift, you can make a pair of cozy, warm, fleece lined mittens from a couple of outdated sweaters in under an hour. I like to call these “Smittens.” Your friends and family will love receiving a unique pair of earth friendly, handmade Smittens this holiday season.
Here’s the Facebook video: (be sure to turn on the sound, it’s more fun with the music.:))

Happy “Smitten” Making!!

Very good DIY video! 😀
I can’t seem to get the pattern to work. I clicked the PDF link on the ehow page for the mittern pattern and I get an error message.
I’m sorry you’re having trouble getting the pattern to work. Here’s a link to one of my old sweater mitten patterns that is basically the same. Just make sure you print it out at 100%. https://chicenvelopements.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/mitten-pattern.pdf
Let me know if you need any more help.
