Mitten Ornaments

My friend Marilyn recently came for a crafting weekend and I borrowed her Spellbinders Mitten die to cut some felt ornaments. She had made me one last Christmas and I thought it was so cute!


I found if I first stitched around the edge of the mitten with my sewing machine, it gave me a line to follow when I hand stitched the blanket stitch edging in  silver embroidery floss.

To decorate them, I used a variety of ribbon, lace, pearls, stickers and bells, along with Tim Holtz fragments :
-red mittens - the images under the fragments are from Crafty Secrets cardstock stickers
-white mitten - I embossed a snowflake,  adhered the fragment over the snowflake,  the verse is a rub-on, then I adhered self-adhesive acrylic over the rub-on to protect it. A lot of work for one tiny embellishment!
