Mittens Sewing Pattern


When my kids were babies, I would always make them wear tiny mittens to keep those little hands warm and cozy. Moreover, how much ever I cut their nails, I always found them scratching their faces and these no scratch baby mittens were often necessary to protect them.

Of course, I could use the store-bought ones. But, being an ardent sewist, I never liked the designs or the styles of mittens I bought. I always wanted to sew them for my little ones.

This mitten pattern is super easy to make. You only need tiny scraps of flannel or Minky to sew them for the colder months. For the hot summer months, you can use medium-weight cotton.

This tutorial on how to make baby mittens is so easy that any beginner can give it a try. There are not many steps involved and you can sew it in minutes!

Mittens have also been a staple on my baby shower gift sets. Sometimes, I loved sewing matching bibs, burp cloths, booties, and mittens with matching fabrics and gift them to the new moms among my family and friends.

Gather your supplies.




Use your pattern to cut 2 pieces of the outside and 2 pieces of the inside fabric.


Cut 2 pieces of elastic; 4” for the 3-month size and 5” for the 6-month size.


Place the matching pieces right sides together and pin the pieces in place.


Leaving a 3/8″ seam allowance, sew around the mitten.


Cut notches out of the curve and turn the lining piece right side out.


Using your turning tool or your fingers, smooth out the edges.


Slide the lining piece into the outside piece with your hand, making sure the curved edges and seams are lined up. Pin the edges, leaving a 2” opening.


Leaving a 3/8″ seam allowance, sew around the mitten, except for your opening.


Pull the lining out through the opening.


Push the lining back into the mitten with your hands and using a warm iron, press.


Leaving 3/8- inch from the lower edge, sew a straight line all around the mitten. This is to form a casing for the elastic.


Attach your elastic to a safety pin, push through the opening in the casing until the other edge of the elastic comes through. Using your sewing machine or by hand sewing, sew the ends of the elastic together and close the small opening in the casing.


Enjoy your baby mittens!
