Would you like to make and sell lots of mittens fast, efficiently, and of professional quality? Then a die is what you need, to perfectly cut out your mitten pieces in seconds, versus cutting by hand in minutes, with imperfect results.

These dies were custom made for my from a mitten pattern I submitted to Accucut. They fit perfectly in the Accucut GrandMark die cutting machine, their largest machine available. http:\/\/www.accucut.com\/GrandeMARKbr__Accessories-c135-p1,135.html?

Do you have a smaller Accucut die cutter? If so, they offer a trade in program, making the upgrade to the GrandMark affordable for a small in-home or cottage industry business. http:\/\/www.accucut.com\/stores\/5\/specials.cfm

I've written up the entire mitten making process in a concise, step-by-step tutorial with photos of each step. Find that here: http:\/\/fivegreenacres.wordpress.com\/2009\/12\/07\/sweater-mitten-tutorial\/

There are 3 dies for sale here. (die cutting machine is not included, nor are die cuts) Each die includes the 3 pieces needed to make a pair of mittens in that given size. The sizes are Adult Large, Adult Medium, and Child 1-3yr. I chose to have dies made of these sizes because they were the most popular. The other sizes and their patterns are included in the tutorial. (that tutorial combined the Adult L & M into a hybrid size, to simplify)

Included with the dies are two corresponding cutting plastic sheets, which are necessary to cut with the Accucut.
One sheet measures 14 1\/2" x 19" and works with both the Adult L & M of the same size.
The second cutting plastic is 10 x 16, which corresponds to the Child 1-3 die of the same size.

One note - there is a slight pattern discrepancy with the thumb of the Adult L die. One thumb piece is about 1\/4" too wide, as you can see in the last photo. It's a minor discrepancy, easily fixed by trimming that piece when the seams are trimmed, so no additional steps are needed to fix it.

Feel free to convo with any questions or for international shipping rates.

I've used these dies with much success; couldn't imagine making any number of mittens without them. My business has moved in another direction, so I no longer need the dies, though they've got a lifetime of use left in them.
