Merry Christmas!

Hello! Merry Christmas to all who celebrate! I'm popping in with a scheduled post of some felt mitten ornament / gift card holders that I recently made. The first one is Sabrina's:

Once I made hers, I duplicated the design for 7 nieces and nephews. Theirs double as gift card holders. Each is made out of felt using the Mitten Garland die. I stitched 2 mittens together and left an opening on the top for the gift card. I also stitched around the mitten cuff, then hot glued it to the mitten base. Here are all of them:

Each one is decorated with a snowflake (included with the Mitten Garland), pinked circle and their initial (cut out of burlap paper with the Chunky Alpha). I also added a button tied off with hemp cord and jingle bells to the mitten cuff. Finally, I added some burlap ribbon so that the mitten can be hung up. Here are the girls':

And here are the boys':

Here's a detail shot of one mitten (you can also see that a standard gift card fits perfectly inside):

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!
