I can’t believe that December is here and my time contributing to the Sewing Rabbit is over! I had a wonderful time creating projects for each of my posts and I hope that you were able to sew along with some of them! If you missed any, stop by my site at www.sewingmamaraeanna.com and visit the tutorial page! You’ll find some of the Sewing Rabbit posts and other projects for your crafty enjoyment!
Today I am revisiting a classic – the hand muff! My grandma made me a coat, hat, and muff ensemble when I was three and I thought I would take my own spin on the classics and create a look for Eva Mae this winter!
I couldn’t post without showing you a side by side comparison of me and my daughter at the same age!
To create your own hand muff, here are 9 easy steps that will sew up in a flash and be the perfect accessory to your child’s winter wardrobe!
- 2 rectangles of fabric – 8″x14.5″ (see diagram on how to cut)*
– Fabric choices can be faux fur, minky, or fleece
- Rope or ribbon (30-35″)
- Sewing machine, thread, pins, scissors
* This is how I positioned my fabric to cut the hand muff pieces. You can adjust the measurements to make a larger or smaller muff.
So easy, right? And such a cute spin on a classic winter set!
And before I sign off, I had to share this hysterical photo! I had to bribe her with candy to try to get her hands in the muff for the photos. I love this outtake when she realizes they are all gone!!!
I want to thank Jess of the Sewing Rabbit for her wonderful leadership, and allowing me to share my ideas with the Sewing Rabbit readers!
