    Madawaska Mittens with Sheri Noel

    I love quilting and sewing, but I also love making cozy mittens from wool sweaters,  and I've made hundreds! (no lie!)

    In this fun  workshop I will walk you through making your first pair of mittens lined with fleece.  You won't believe how warm they are! 

    I'm going to share all my tips and tricks on what sweaters to use, how to dissect your sweater, and how to make them larger for the men in your life.  Plus… I’ll share some of the fun projects I’ve made with the scraps :) So dig out your old sweaters (or head to the thrift store) and let’s make some mittens!

    You can download the pattern from Sheri's website.
