FABRICS: 

  • 1/2 yard thick cotton for the outer layer
  • Heat-resistant batting for the middle layer
  • Regular batting
  • 1/2 year medium weight cotton for the inner layer


Cut two 10 x 12 inch pieces from each fabric.

To make the pattern, simply draw a mitt-shape around your hand on the craft paper and cut it out.
