About

A Piece of Wearable Art to Keep Your Hands Toasty Warm

Dear Customer!

I am a graphic designer by trade, but I also like to dabble in other creative projects — like making mittens. Making wool sweater mittens takes many hours: From finding the quality wool sweaters, then washing and drying and felting the material, to cutting out all mitten parts; from sketching the design on paper and then cutting out all those little paper pieces to create templates; from cutting out the felt for the appliqué work, and machine sewing of the felt pieces; from cutting out the felt pieces that make the design and machine-sewing them on, to hand-stitching the cuff and hand-sewing on buttons. But making pretty mittens makes me happy! And it makes me even more happy to see that I create a smile on a customer's face. I have created and sold over 400 mittens locally at Alaska Holiday bazaars (as of December 2018), and now I am offering mittens here on Etsy, too. Some customers ask for a custom design: I've created mittens for a Siberian Husky breeder & musher, mittens for a mother who loves to Nordic ski with her son, mittens for a lady who likes to ski with her Black Lab, mittens for a girl who likes to pick salmonberries on the tundra, mittens for an Aurora chaser, mittens for a wildlife biologist, mittens for a fisherwoman, mittens for a book author...

What will your custom mittens display?

Greetings from Talkeetna, Alaska!

    Hello! I am a graphic designer by trade. For the fun of it, I started making "Alaska Mittens". I have sold over 400 of my designer mittens in local, Alaska holiday bazaars, and now I am selling here on Etsy, too.
