DIY Mittens From an Upcycled Flannel Shirt = Shmittens :)


Hey all you Smitten people out there. Remember my Mittens Made From Sweaters posts and videos? Well, here’s another fun idea that I’m now calling:

SHMITTENS!!!

Hahahahaha! Get it? Shirt + Mittens = SHMITTENS!!!

Oh my gosh, sometimes I just crack myself up. đŸ™‚

Take an old flannel shirt that’s been hanging around the thrift store or maybe even a loved one’s old shirt to create some shmittens. Not only will they keep your hands toasty warm, but they’ll look so cute, your friends will be asking which little boutique carries them.

All it takes is one of the shirt sleeves you saved after making this flannel shirt tote bag, two sweater sleeves you saved after making these holiday sweater trees and a little fleece. That’s it! Just a word of warning though — you might like making these so much, no one’s shirts or sweaters will be safe around you again.
