Sweater Mittens

We know it was the first day of spring yesterday, but Kate, one of our team members, was ecstatic about her DIY sweater mittens!

As the temperature slowly rises, we imagine you might be purging some of you warmer winter clothes from your closets. Since RIT is a major proponent of sustainability, what better way is there to repurpose some of your old clothes than to make new ones?

All you need is:

  • Thrifted sweater
  • Fabric Scissors
  • Washable marker
  • Needle & thread

You can do this with just about any sweater, no matter the colors or patterns! They make a great gift or a toasty warm addition to your winter wardrobe!

Don’t forget to use #RITStudentLife to share your experience with us!
