Use this free pattern to sew fingerless gloves – fleece mittens make a great gift for men, kids and women
Hey y’all, I have some quick and easy to sew gift posts planned to round out this month, starting with these fleece mittens I’m sharing today. I’m also sharing a pattern for my newsletter subscribers to make these in sizes from kids up to men, because mittens are great gifts to sew for men, kids, women – everyone on your list! They also sew up really quickly, which is great if you’re under a gift deadline crunch.
We had some unseasonably cold football games this year, and at each of them I found myself torn between wanting to keep my hands warm and needing to use my phone to respond to texts. These fleece mittens are the perfect compromise. The thumb tips are always exposed for easy phone operation. If you need more fingers to grip or use something else, you can easily slide them out from the mitten flaps.
As you can see, the Coach has a pair too, perfect for keeping warm while he plays video games. And you can pull your fingers out to warm them on a hot drink, then tuck them back away in the fleece to stay toasty.
I haven’t made any for my boys yet, but those are next. Since they don’t have phones, they’re last in line.
