ornamentation: happy mittens


Did you see my printable Christmas tags? Well, I thought it would be fun to take one of those designs and make an ornament from it! As Christmas comes closer, the projects get simpler, so how about some happy little mittens that take only a few minutes to make?

You're gonna need:
Felt
Other fabric (I used corduroy)
Embroidery floss
Craft glue
Mitten pattern PDF

Cut out two mitten shapes, and two hearts.

Stitch some happy faces onto the mittens. Follow the pattern, or just go for it freehand, as I did.

Glue the hearts onto the mittens.

Stitch and knot a length of embroidery floss connecting the two mittens.

Fold the connecting string in half, but not quite even, and then tie a knot to make a loop. Or, you can leave them without the knot. Either way works, and either way, you're all finished!

Two little mitten friends are ready for your tree! These would also be fun to keep around after Christmas and into January. Maybe they could hang out around a doorknob?
