This is a quick and easy project that’s great for gifts for children and adults, especially when paired with a matching fleece hat!

Print, tape, and cut out the pattern pieces. I’ve done a small, medium, and large, but if you need them to be smaller or larger, it’s easy to use my lines as a guide.
The front of fleece looks a little more plush than the back. If printed, the back looks more blurry.
Lay out the fleece with the wrong side up.
Stretch the fleece both ways to figure out which is stretchier. Place the pattern pieces accordingly.
Trace around the mitten back piece, the upper front piece, and the lower front piece. Cut them out.
Sew across what will be the palm and around the thumb with about an 1/8” seam allowance. Stop when you’re even with the palm line. Backstitch at the beginning and end.
Pin the front and back pieces together with right sides facing.
Turn the lining right side out. Slip the lining into the fleece and pin around the bottom.
Sew around the bottom with a ¼” seam allowance. Leave a gap of about 2 or 3 inches.
Hand sew the opening shut with a hidden stitch.
Fold the bottom up to where you want it. You could tack in place with a few stitches, but I like to keep it adjustable. This way you can even unfold it all the way so there’s no gap between the mitten and your jacket sleeves.
Repeat these steps for the other mitten, just remember to flip the pattern pieces the opposite of how you had them the first time. So the pattern pieces should be flipped to the back for the fleece and they should face up for the faux fur.
