Say YES to fur!

Faux fur, that is. And monster fur, to be exact.  Grin

Finally got off my bum to craft some wares to sell.  I made some scarves out of the same material last winter with hand-warmer pockets and claws.





The fur is only on the backs of the mittens, so they won't interfere with stuff like holding mugs of tea, jabbing eyes, or other delicate operations.

I used an anti-pill fleece, which is super sturdy.  I was originally going to use two layers of fleece per side but after seeing how heavy it was, I was like,"No need for that."

Despite the curves, it is much easier than making the scarves.  My mom's machine can't handle so many layers - I haven't set up my old school Singer Touch n Sew, which should tackle anything up to bearskin, I think - but the mittens went through all right.

I bought such mittens for 3 years. I always feel like a teddy bear if I wear them. Mine are black with violet stripes but yours looks so much better, than mine.

Really great!!! Grin

I agree you should add eyes and teeth. That would make them much more monsterous.

I got mine at Joann's.  They seem to carry a lot of that stuff now.
I was going to add claws, but it seems really difficult.  Too many layers of fabric for my typewriter to handle. Tongue
