We accept pairs all year, so it’s never too early or too late to mail them in!

For those who are looking to create some upcycled mittens, using old sweaters, here’s a great tutorial! Thank you, Adam at, for creating this video.

Here’s another video tutorial for upcycled mittens. This one uses a single sweater and hand-sewing. You can use more than one sweater (one for the front, one for the back), and you can use a machine to stitch it faster. This was sent to us by Mittens for Detroit supporter Lori Colburn!
