The first animal to find The Mitten is the mole. Today I’m sharing the pattern for the mole in my character ball series.

For the next month, I will be sharing a character ball set to tell the story of The Mitten. The animals all fit snugly in the mitten and will really fly when the mitten is flipped inside out.

Week by week I will share another character and will link them all up when finished. So far I have already shared the pattern for the big mitten. You can get started there and fill the mittens week by week with the character balls.

  1. My mom is really into “the mitten” and is going to stitch 3 sets for grandkids. How often do you post the next animal? Of course she got the mole done in one day and is waiting for the next animal.
    Thanks so much for you and your creativity.
