Handwarmers-sp5_large

Description

It’s official, I love those fingerless gloves. In wintry seasons, I wear them everyday, at home, at work, and at any time in-between.
I usually make them from leftovers of my sewing, but this winter I made them from unwanted clothes, which was a hit. Very washed thin pullovers can be very good material source of hand warmers.

It seems that the link to the pattern are misplaced at the moment, so I put the links down there,

Material Notes

one white thin woolen turtle neck that made my neck itchy to death, one very tired cardigan which is made of colorful spotted woolen jersey, and one peppermint-colored cotton vest with glitter beads on the surface made 5(!) pairs of hand warmers. I got the cardigan and the vest from my local thrift shop, knowing that old and seemingly unwanted clothes are good for my purpose. Basically, long sleeved material makes 2 pairs, ordinarily T does 1 pair of hand warmers. Because they had good washes in their former lives, those hand warmers are very much tough and quite washable. I know you wouldn’t feel in need two pairs in the same fabric, but still I think it’s nice to give them a chance to be nice and useful once again!
