Mittens, Mittens, Mittens!

Happy winter! It is very cold here, so naturally my thoughts turned to mittens... and hot cocoa. Let's talk about mittens first - here's a great group of all things mitten-ish!
By the way, homemade cocoa is really easy and delicious!

Have a wool sweater that is too worn or outgrown to wear again? Turn it into Mittens, Cut and Sewn from Shrunken Sweaters. It is an easy project to machine or hand sew. Added to Sewing Projects and Recycled Crafts

Walk in the snow with your sweetie and keep warm holding hands with the Lovers' Mitten Added to Knitting Projects

These Crochet Mittens are designed for a women's size small, though you can modify them. They're crocheted in parts and then crocheted together. Great way to use up leftover yarn. Added to Crochet Projects

Ultra-practical, though a bit challenging, Broad Street Mittens, turn into "hobo" gloves when you need to get keys out of your purse, put on chapstick, etc, etc. Added to Knitting Projects

Protect your fingers from hot drinks and keep them extra warm, too when you knit a Coffee Sweater Added to Knitting Projects

Rather stay inside and get some crafts done? Me, too! Cross-stitch these Gingerbread Man Mittens for a sweet gift. I think this chart would also work up nicely in plastic canvas for a Christmas tree ornament or package decoration. Added to Needlecrafts Projects

While you're keeping the homefires burning, enjoy this cute video of Martha Stewart making Monster Mittens with a chatty first-grader who steals the show.
Close the video to view the directions and pattern. Added to Sewing Projects

If your kids always lose their mittens, perhaps they'll hang on to them if you turn them into puppets with these animal and people puppet knitted additions. Added to Knitting Projects

Most little girls will love these Bunny Hat and Paw Mittens. Too precious! Also great for a cold weather Halloween costume. Added to Sewing and Halloween Projects

The inevitable lost mitten can be turned into cute puppets using felt and fabric glue. Added to Kids Crafts and Recycled Crafts

Finally, when it's just too cold to go outside, keep them busy with mitten-themed activities. Added to Kids Crafts Categories: Halloween Crafts, Kids Crafts, Knitting and Crochet, Needlework, Recycled Crafts, Sewing

AllCrafts.net Arts & Crafts Book Review - Hip Handbags: Creating & Embellishing 40 Great-Looking Bags

Hip Handbags: Creating & Embellishing 40 Great-Looking Bags 

This book gives you the patterns & instructions to create seven basic handbag and shoulderbag types. Then the author shows you creative materials and embellishments that will inspire you to create a truly individual purse. Each variation is explained thoroughly. Several new techniques are shown in these projects.
All of the essential purse shapes are covered - clutch, tote, large purse, messenger bag, envelope and more. The patterns are in the text on graph paper. They're easy to scan into the computer and create any size.
This book begins with a great introduction on designing handbags. Just this section alone made me consider several projects. If you just want to dip your toes into making purses, the first few projects use ready-made purses.
Another chapter discusses fabric choices in depth and illustrates basic techniques like lining and pockets. These construction details help you customize your designs.
My favorite thing about this book is that this approach really teaches you to design your own bags. It is very clear how to follow one of the designs, but they also provide that extra information to help you if you stray away from the pattern, as I usually do…

Finally, if you would like to go totally hip with your bags, there's an outrageous photo gallery of the most modern of handbags.
