I just finished two pairs of mittens for kids and now I am struggling with making them look fun. They were supposed to be ‘cat and mouse’, one pair is white and a bit larger, the other is brown and smaller. I need to add ears and facial features
So, I tried double stitch, crocheting, knitting 3D ears on and adding buttons. It either doesn’t look cute (buttons) or isn’t neat (everything else). I even considered adding googly eyes with a glue gun.
Basically, most of the techniques prevent fabric from stretching sideways evenly and the worn mitten looks strange.
