Sewing for baby can be so fun, but can also take up precious time if that baby is yours! We love quick sewing projects that will benefit your little one without pulling away from much-needed time to care for your infant or have a rest yourself. This baby mittens tutorial from Speckled Owl Studio will have you off of the sewing machine in no time with a pair of great mitts for baby’s protection and warmth.
There are a few magic words behind this tutorial, including NO raw edges and NO elastic! Elastic is tough with a little one if you’re concerned with tightness and growth, so this tutorial utilizes a soft stretch knit that takes the guess work out of sizing your mittens. It’s sure not to pinch tiny wrists, so you can rest assured they’ll be snug & safe.
We also love that this tutorial guides you through a lining that will give you no raw edges so you don’t have to worry about fraying or loose threads for baby to get a hold of. Even better? They’ll be reversible, too! For a very young little one, these mittens are a great option to keep baby from scratching themselves, and the warmth is certainly an added benefit.
Have you made mittens for babies before? These sew up so quickly, they make for great baby shower & birthday gifts!
