하나, Ellis isn’t planning on selling more mittens. Though she was selling about 30 또는 40 mittens she made from repurposed and up-cycled sweaters last year when she first tweeted about making Sanders’ mittens, Ellis doesn’t have any of the materials left.

People have been contacting me thinking that they can get mittens, and actually they can’t,” she told Slate. “I don’t have any more, and I don’t have much of a mitten business anymore because it really wasn’t worth it.

It wasn’t really worth it pursuing that as a business, even as a side hustle,” she added later. “I mostly just make them as gifts.
