I made these mittens for my sister. My intention was to make her the mittens and a rubblework scarf using this fabric. Well, I realized that wasn’t going to happen so instead I serendipitously found this squirrel bottle bag — I don’t know anything about this seller, they just had a decent photo — on sale at Oilily. And the best thing is my sister is smart enough to appreciate the handmade and the Oilily, I’m not sure anyone else in my family would appreciate both.
