Said kids love said snow. Every year said mother buys said kids new gloves for said snow. And at least one of said gloves for said kids for said snow gets lost. Every year. And always twelve seconds before said kids want to go out and play in said snow giving said mother twelve seconds of peace she so desperately needs in the dead of winter when she is trapped inside for fourteen hours a day with said kids.
(Have I said enough? Ha ha)
Okay, I’m done being obnoxious for this post. Where was I? Oh yeah, lost gloves. It’s a major child crisis when there’s 12 inches of new powder begging to be molded into snowballs perfect for sibling pelting and mittens are nowhere to be found. What’s a mother to do?
Lemon Squeezy to the rescue. Keep some fleece and a couple of yards of elastic on hand at all times, and you can whip up a pair of emergency snow mittens in half an hour or less. Even if you’re a beginner, this project is super easy and fast. You don’t even need a pattern, just a spare kid hand to trace around. Bookmark this sewing tutorial and never again face the tragedy of lost mittens on a snowy afternoon.
