Fancy pink mittens!


Mittens

Another pair of mittens I made. Making these was a lot easier and a lot quicker than the first pair. Now I know what I'm doing!

The outside is a shiny satin-like fabric, it's quite heavy so it works well for mittens. Although it's not waterproof, so the mittens are not to be used in wet conditions!

On the inside I've used light gray fleece. I tried dyeing it, but because it's 100% polyester, the dye didn't stick. D'oh!

I don't really like gray, but for some reason pink and gray suit each other. I think so anyway.

The mittens look rather fancy, certainly not like your garden-variety knitted woolly mittens. Hehe!
