DIY Minky Cuff Gloves
You wouldn't think it possible that old Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow in Seattle last week, but our resident groundhog indeed prophesied another six more weeks of winter weather. And he was right as we got a few inches of snow in Seattle over the weekend. It was the best of every world in that we could go out and play in it and send the kids to school on Monday! Since it's still frigid, I wanted to share this quick and fun easy sew project I'm calling DIY Minky Cuff Gloves.
And don't stop with gloves if you have an old jacket that needs upgrading or add some minky to the kids' parka hoods. Too cute! I picked up these black gloves at the Dollar Store during the holidays with an intention to embellish for a Christmas gift, but that didn't happen. I did however spent a quick 10 minutes to whip these up for myself. Everyone wins?! The cozy minky cuff adds just the right amount of luxe to my winter puffer jacket and keeps me cozy for a day running in and out of the house.
Here's what you need for your own DIY Minky Cuff Gloves:
- Dollar store gloves in your favorite color
- Scrap Minky fabric to coordinate with the gloves. If you don't have this on hand, check your fabric store sale/scrap table for the perfect amount at a great price.
- Tape measure or string and a ruler
- Sewing machine
