DIY MIttens

Just wanted to say Happy Mother's Day to all of our Mom's out there across the miles (and to our Grandmom's,Aunt's and Dad's who are Mom's too). I've been Mom and Dad for 19 years so I know what the job entails. It isn't always easy and it can be rough at times but one thing for sure it is the best job in the world! Enjoy your special day!!

This craft is for the bigger kids and Moms. I found this idea on Pinterest and love this idea. It's a great way to use sweaters that have gown too small or maybe out of style. I'm really excited to try it and wanted to share it here on my blog so others could try it as well. 
There's no instructions but as you can see it's pretty self explanatory. I think you could probably line the gloves with some type of fleece or lambswool to make them extra warm. I think it would be cute too if there was a little strap across the wrist where you could make it tighter if need be.

Anyways, I think this is just a really adorable idea and it's a great way to recycle!
