Beanies and Matching Mittens from an Old Sweater

Look at the latest holiday edition of for instructions how to make easy beanies and matching mitten from an old sweater! Kids are always losing theirs, so this would be great for a wintry mom. All you do is use the edge of the sweater for a headband of the beanie and cut a head shape and sew it up and a hand shape on the arms of the old sweater, also using the sleeve edge as the new edge for the mittens. Great Idea.
