Great quality and I love the pattern! I gifted these to my best friend's daughter and have been informed she wears them all the time! Thank you for making these and allowing people like me to practice recycling in more ways than one!

Love these mitts! Fleece lining is so cozy and I love the seaming in contrasting thread.

SLO just happens to be my initials. The relevence wasn't clear when i was younger; i wondered how the word would represent ME and what i was creating. But it is exactly what i stand for...locally made (in Hamilton, canada), upcycled, thoughtful products. All 100% hand-made with love by me.
I make a lot of things....ornaments, baby t-shirts, bags, quilts, mittens. It might seem a little random! But they do have a few things in common...they are all made using found or vintage fabrics (unless otherwise stated, like mitten linings or quilt stuffing). Everything is made by me in my Hamilton studio. My creations are all original SLO designs. I make my own patterns for everything! Some have really evolved over time (the mittens for example!); making something over and over, you learn a few things about how they could be made better!
