I have a hot pink fleece jacket that I walk in, and I've been wearing a blue striped toboggan with black mittens. Needless to say add a lime green fluorescent walking vest, ane I'm making the totally wrong fashion statement. This picture is of my new hat and mittens with my jacket.
My walking buddy has a camouflage jacket that she walks in with an orange hunting vest. We want to make sure that the cars see us on the road. Her birthday was Friday so I made her a camouflage hat and mittens lined in hunter orange fleece. She's delighted that she's now matching.
The fleece mitten pattern can be found at Fleece Fun. I changed the pattern in two ways. First I took the curved sides out the top of the mitten(I wanted to be sewing straight when I was sewing the inside mitten to the outside mitten. Be sure to do the same thing for the back side of the mitten.
The second thing I did was to cut one mitten a 1/4 inch larger or smaller than the mitten. For the children's mitten pattern, I cut the outside mitten larger and for the adult mitten, I cut the inside pattern smaller. Hope that makes sense.
The hat pattern is from The Crafty Gemini. This is a LINK to both the pattern and the tutorial. I promise this hat went together as well as anything I've ever sewn, and the tutorial is excellent.
