    Minion mittens

    I made a pair of mittens, hat, and scarf for a sister-in-law for Christmas out of poly fleece with the M&M candy characters. Later, my wife and I were at Walmart when I spotted some fleece with Minions (from the movie Despicable Me). I couldn't resist making another pair of mittens out of them.

    Oddly, neither Joanns or Hancocks had any fleece with these characters. I found a free pattern for mittens at fleecefun.com.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I know a couple of grandsons who would like these except for the fact that they live in a hot State. Me, I would like the M & M ones! Thanks for the pattern link and love your mittens!

    OK, I couldn't resist. These are so cute! Had to stop at WalMart and look for the minion fabric -- FOUND IT! I had already looked up the mitten pattern on the great link you provided, and saw she has patterns sized for kids and adults. I got enough fabric to make minion mittens for my daughter's entire family. I know I won't get them done for this winter, but I'm planning ahead. I'm going to use a different color fleece lining for each pair so it will be easy to tell whose they are. Thanks for posting this.
