Made these for my nephew using the pattern out of Warm Fuzzies. Unfortunately, the mittens are obviously too small, and the hat may be as well.  Undecided *sigh*

I'm sending them to him anyway, with a note that if they are too small then they should fit the Alien I made him last year.......

Anyway -- they were fun, and I will try again sometime and augment the sizing.




Made it reversible, in case he ever wants the Lumber Jack Look:


The WAY too small mittens:


What's funny is that the Cubs are only his SECOND favorite team; he's a Yankees' boy living in Manhattan, so who knows if he'll get teased for this....(HE chose the polar fleece!)

Oh that turned out really cute!

Does anyone know where to find Cubs cotton fabric? I've been searching for some to make my sister some scrubs. She's a nurse and a BIG Cubs fan, but all I find is the fleece. If anyone ever comes across this, please let me know! It would mean SOOO much to me!

Thanks!

 Grin One of my least favorite things in life is when my mittens pop out of my sleeves leaving a gap that snow gets in! I LOVE looooong cuffs on my hand-gear ---

Hi, from what I was told when I lived in Chicago, and looking for WHITE SOX cotton fabric, is that they don't make it anymore. I mean, they don't make anymore MBL cotton designs. I can find all the football cotton I need, but no baseball teams! I have also been trying to find West Virginia University cotton, to make a little dress for my daughter, husband is a WVU fan, but I have never seen it either. Good luck, I hope I am wrong. If you find it I would love to know where to get some!
