Introduction to Leather Mitten Making

February 15, 2020 - February 22, 2020


In this class you will learn how to trace a pattern on leather and your sheep shearling lining and size the leather to fit your lining. You will learn how to cut both the leather and liner as well as learning a blanket stitch. The end result is a high-quality set of authentic leather and shearling mittens, and the ability to make more pairs for our cold winters.

About the instructor

Born and raised near Kenora in Northwestern Ontario, Sheila Cailleau is the founder and owner of Magpie Chiq in Winnipeg. Inspired by nature and her Metis roots, Sheila works with leather and fur to create beautiful, luxurious and functional items: boots, mitts, shoes and bags. Each handcrafted, hand-sewn item captures the authenticity of our northern land as we live it today, in a coffee shop, at a hockey rink, a summer festival, on a frozen lake, wherever your spirit takes you.
