sweaters and mittens and mittens and sweaters!

I just came across a pattern from Martha Stewart where she recycles old sweaters and turns them into mittens. It looks super easy, I think I can handle that! I have SO many sweaters, some of which I never wear. I usually donate them to the Salvation Army, but this might also be a fun thing to try, eh? This weekend I am going to the DC Threads Sewing Lounge, so I think I may bring an old sweater or two and try this out!

I can make pairs to send to my Albanian babies, and also, add them to my future etsy shop! Speaking of, I decided on a name for my shop! Any guesses? :)

The sewing place in DC you're going to sounds really fun!

Oh I want a pair!! That sounds way to adorable! .. and I am not crafty enough to make my own... I will be waiting outside the doors of your etsy shop for some!
