Supply List:

Madawanska mitten pattern, available at J. Madeline’s Quilt Shoppe

Adult-sized felted wool sweater (see Note below)

1/3 yard of polyester fleece

Thread to match sweater

Pins or Wonder clips


Rotary cutter and mat

2 buttons for cuffs (optional)

Hand-sewing needle

Light-weight pressing cloth (approximately 12” square)

Sewing machine (with thread and bobbin to match the sweater)

Note: You will need to “felt” your sweater before class. This can be done by washing a 100% wool sweater in hot water with detergent in a washing machine with an old pair of jeans or an old towel. If you have a high efficiency washer, you may have to wash more than once. Please note, white wool will not felt. Tumble-dry the sweater with the jeans/towel with medium to high heat.   For an interesting mitten, consider using parts from 2 or 3 sweaters.
