Christmas Felt Mitten

A very good afternoon from a cold  and windy island today.
Yesterday I had a play with felt that I had bought recently....I'm a huge Pinterest fan and while pinning I came across fabulous felt creations and decided to have a go myself.....and here is the results

I started by making a template from card and then pinned it onto my felt
 and cut out 2 a front and back

at this point  you need to decorate the front of the mitten with whatever you want
I went for some stars but you can use sequins and beads.....
I stitch both bits together using a blanket stitch with red DMC standed cotton leaving the top open.
Stuff the mitten using safetly standard toy stuffing and sew top together.

Using a 3mm crochet hook and red yarn make a chain of 30 stitches and fasten off.
Attach this to the top of the mitten.
Cut out 2 white cuffs stitched them together at each end and then
 attached trim and attached it to the top of the mitten.

I finished my mitten off by adding some red gingham ribbon and a green button.
I'm rather pleased with how it has turned out...Hope you like it too.
Whatever your plans for today.....have a good one.

Thanks for stopping by....much appreciated!
