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!
