Then I cut and then sewed across the inside out mitten piece in a circular pattern.
Instead of posting links to Making Do Ideas on this blog now (I'll just post my own projects here though they are few and far between now), I'm now posting them on my Pinterest Board named Making Do Stuff.
You do not have to have a Pinterest account to see it.

Wool Sweater Toddler Mittens with Cord
So now that I have mittens, it was time for the two year old to have mittens. I decided not to worry about a thumb, she just needed her hands warm. You could easily do a thumb if you wanted to. So, I grabbed another set of sleeves that has shrunken way down. You never know how a sweater is going to shrink and this one shrunk so much that it looked like only Olive Oil would have fit in those sleeves. Then I also took two strips of another sweater about two inches wide for I am going to make a cord to keep on the mittens. Do you know I haven't been able to find ready made gloves for kids that have that feature anymore? Probably has to do with choking safety standards, but I want mine to have that. I survived with them, I bet she will too.
