    Thanks to many for getting me off the ground on this--tried to load just a couple of pics but that wasn't happening, so an excuse for a little vid:

    Congrats on the first of many DIY adventures!

    PF
    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Formerly known as Acercanto, my trail name is MacGuyver to some, and Pucker Factor to others.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness. - Randy Glasbergen

    Be careful, it is an addiction! Great looking mitts. Before you know it you will be sewing up a 40* pod

    Way to go Medicine Man! Those look great and your sense of "I can do this" just made you an addict.
    Happy Trails to one and all.
    Enjoy the outdoors wisely and elevate your perspective.

    Welcome to DIY MM. Good job. Sewing machines are good tools.
    Something you might want on the end of the cuff is a small sewn on nylon d-ring. And then a piece of zing it or para chord with clips on the ends so when your messin around camp in winter you clip it all together around your neck so you don't lose one and their handy to put back on.
