Just a quick note about yesterday's blog before I show you the mitt as of right now - thanks so much for all the complements, particularly on the zipper! I made the zipper exactly as the pattern directed (and it wasn't hard), and that's how it came out. Like I mentioned, the pattern is very well written and photographed so if you just follow the steps, you'll end up with a cute bag and a perfect zipper. Auntiemichal and Madeline left comments with a link to a pattern by the same designer - it's not the exact pattern I used, but it looks very similar if you're looking for a pattern. The zipper in the finished bags look the same. I almost wonder if my pattern was discontinued and this pattern is a newer version of it (I can't remember when I bought it, but it was a while ago). I can't see a designer having two patterns in their lineup that are so similar.
