Candy Cane Christmas Fabric Mittens Weekend Project

I was playing around with the "Candy Cane Christmas" fabric. I cut out 4 mittens and I cut out one piece of felt for lining for each pair of mittens. I pinned them together and hand stitched them in red.

The top part of the mitten is just a piece of white felt I cut out and glued in place. I didn't want to stitch it, stitching there would distract from the hand part of the mitten.

I took some black craft wire (it was all I had on hand) and made some loops in it. I poked a hole in the mitten and inserted the wire. I wound the wire around the paper piercing tool and squished it as flat as I could get it against the fabric. I repeated this for the other mitten. The mittens measures 4" x 3" each. With the wire the whole thing measures 8" tall by 6" wide. I'm not sure if I'm going to hang this on the tree, on the wall or give it away! Click on the photo for a closer view.

There's lots of other weekend projects (over 125) on my web site. Take a look, just click here.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
