The next step in this how to make warm mittens tutorial is to trace all the way around the mitten template. with a marker. I find it worked best with a thick felt tip marker, but whatever you have on hand should work just fine.

Cut on the traced lined to cut the fabric out. Make sure you are cutting both layers and that they are not separating. This will give you the sides of your mittens! Just these steps for the inner fabric also.

Now we get to the sewing steps of the how to make warm mittens sewing tutorial. Starting with the outer fabric cutout, start sewing around the edge using a 1/4 inch seam allowance. You want to start sewing about the base of the thumb and sew up and around, stoping about the same spot on the other side. This will leave the wrist area flapping. Make sure to do a backstitch at the start and finish for durability.

Once you are done, trim off the extra fabric. Just be sure not to cut into your stitching.

layering the fabric

At the wrist flap area, fold the top fabric side edge in by about 1/4 inch at an angle. Then fold the inner fabric just under it the same.

Sew those two folds together making sure to use a backstitch at the start and finish. Don’t sew all the way to the end. Leave about 1/4 inch from the end edge as is. Repeat this same step to finish the other three edges of the mitten.

How To Make A Mitten With Pattern In A Custom Size

If the template we share for the warm mittens will not fit your hand, you can easily make one just for you. Simply place the palm of your hand on a piece of paper. Have all your fingers together with your thumb sticking out to the side. Trace all the way around your hand. You don’t need to make indents for each finger, you just need the outline of your hand.

Now, using a ruler, make little dots 1/4 inch out from the traced hand all the way around. After you have made them all the way around connect them to make another outline mark. This will be the mark you cut to make your templet and not the first one you traced. At the bottom where your wrist is, add an inch and 3/4 to it. Cut the whole thing out to use as your template.
