First I cut off the sleeve to a length an inch or so longer than I wanted the mitten.
Sadly I didn't take many pictures of the mitten making process. I was in a hurry to make them and leave the house. I did a little more cutting and sewing around the wrist on the thumb side to make it more fitted. Sorry.. this tutorial stinks, but you get the idea.
Here they are done.
This next one you can see where I shaped the thumb side wrist part. It feels more snug now.
I made a pom-pom for the top and here is the finished hat.
And a wreath and pillows!
Yay for upcycling!
