I'm getting to the point where I want to start making some of my own gear.

The first project I am thinking about is a set of Rain Mitts. I'd like to fashion them after my favorite set of mittens, which you can see here: http://www.outsideonline.com/1950261/stoic-welder-trigger-mitts

Since I have it available to me, I am thinking about making them out of Tyvek. I want to try to sew they seam, reinforce it on the inside with Tyvek tape, then seam seal it from the outside. I'd also like to add something to the palms to add some grip and durability. Any thoughts?

I'm new at this, so I'm guessing there's something naive about my plan laugh
