1 – Cut out pattern

Print up the pattern (you can get assembly instructions here)
Decide if you are making a mitt with a contrasting cuff or not.

For a mitt with a contrasting cuff you will need to cut:
2 of the liner
2 of the exterior
2 of the cuff
1 of the loop
2 of the amazing size adjuster

For a mitt with not contrasting cuff you will need to cut :
4 of the liner
1 of the loop
2 of the amazing size adjuster


1b – Cutting out a fur cuff


A couple of things you need to note when you cute out fake fur.

Be aware of the “nap” of the fur (which way the fur lies).  You want your cuff to lie all in one direction.

Cut out the cuff two times instead of once on doubled up fur. you will get a cleaner lines this way.

Shake out the pieces once you have cut them outside – to minimize mess and have a lint roller handy.  the faux fur looks great – but it’s a pain to clean up.



2 – Begin to sew the lining


With right sides together, sew each side seam of the lining using a .5 inch seam allowance, leaving the bottom and the top open.

Once you have sewn each side try slipping the scraper into the top of the mitt – to make sure that it fits, or you might want make the opening a little smaller to make a more snug fit around the scraper.

Turn right side out and set aside.


3- Prepare the amazing size adjuster


Taking the two pieces of the size adjuster place right sides together, and leaving the short straight side open , around using a .25 inch seam allowance.

Trim down excess and turn right side out.  Make sure seams are well pushed out.
Then top stitch close to the edge (less than .25) all the way around.
Then taking 4 – 5 inches of velcro sew the hook on one side and the loop on the other, leaving a gap in between the two.  Note that the Velcro is all on the same side.  Set aside.


4 – Make the exterior with the cuff


If you aren’t making the cuff skip to the next step.
With right sides together take 1 of the exterior and 1 of the cuff.  Pin and sew using a .5 seam allowance.  Repeat with the other pieces.


4 – Make the exterior with the cuff


If you aren’t making the cuff skip to the next step.

With right sides together take 1 of the exterior and 1 of the cuff.  Pin and sew using a .5 seam allowance.  Repeat with the other pieces.


5 – Tack on the d ring, loop and size adjuster


Take the “loop” piece and fold each side in and  sew a straight stitch down the middle to give it a nice finish.  Slip the D ring on the loop and fold in half (the loop is to secure the D ring onto the mitt).
Take one side of the exterior (whether you have made one with a cuff or not) and sew the D ring and loop onto one side and the amazing size adjuster to the other (see points on diagram).  Note:  The Velcro should be facing up when you sew on one end the adjuster (the curved end should be loose, the straight end should be sewn to the mitt)


4 – Bring the exterior together


Like you did with the lining, sew each side using a  .5 inch seam allowance.  Taking care to go slow over the section that you sew the d – ring and adjuster as the there is a lot of thick material).  Leave the top and the bottom open.


5- Add the lining


Take the lining and stuff it inside the exterior, so right sides are touching.  Line up the seams and the bottoms.  Pin the bottoms of the lining and the exterior together.  Sew all the way around the bottom using a .5 inch  seam allowance


6 – Finishing up


Turn right side out using the opening at the top ( work with a it a little as it is a squeze).  Once turned right side out, stuff the lining of the mitt into place, and insert the scraper, thread the adjuster through the d ring and  finished!


7 – Finishing the fur cuff


This is a picky thing but it makes the fur cuff look really nice.  Take a pin and pull the fur that get caught in the seam out. – if make the side seams practically invisible and looks professionally finished.



  1. I bought one of these for my sisters christmas stocking last year at Eddie Bauyer for around ten dollars. I just made two out of remnants i got on sale. Total cost for two ….FIVE DOLLARS!!!!! And enough fabric left over to make my baby a hat. Love all your stuff. Thanks!!!

  2. Hi, as it snowed here yesterday and my fingers were frozen when I had to scrap my car’s windows, I decided to follow your example and pattern, and it is both simple and quick to realise (all right, as I used double-sided fleece, I didn’t see an intern mitten, and a press sturd intead of velcro). It’s really worth it. I have added some pictures on my blog ( ! See you soon !

  3. Hello, I love this, I wanted to make one for my husband who has to go out soon to work and feel the ice in his hands, but by clicking on the image of the envelope of the pattern nothing happens. You can check it out or send me the pattern?, thank you. I love your jobs and they’re fun. Greetings Esther

  4. I’m trying to download the pdf and nothing happens when I click on the pattern envelope. Not sure if I’m doing something wrong, but I’d like to make a few of these. I’d appreciate if you could advise. Thank you.
