Extreme weather mitts
When I was a child, I wore a completely different kind of extreme weather mitt that Lazy Marion could approve. My mother would stack several layers of fabric together, using cloth of differing weights. Then, she would have me put my hands on the stack and she'd trace around them. She'd cut out two hand-shapes for each mitt, put the "hands" palms together, and sew them with the seams to the outside. They aren't very pretty, but they are so warm that my mom ended up making them for all the neighbourhood kids.
