Thumbless Infant Mittens

Published by at 4:26 pm under Animal Materials

First, thanks Ian, for your kind donation!

I always have some projects on the go. The last week I have for a great extent, when not occupied otherwise, been sewing on these mittens. Due to not feeling confident enough on this tailoring business, I haven’t made a tutorial. Despite being a total newbie in it, I do however feel that they turned out rater good.


The instructions in Edna Wilder’s “Secrets of Eskimo Skin Sewing” was followed more or less. The fur is braintanned fox and the skin lining the inside is braintanned roe deer. On the next pair, which is for my oldest daughter, I will make thumbs on as well.


Get my book "Traditional Trout Fishing: Fishing for Survival in the North (Volume 1)
