Happy Friday! I don't know about you, but I had several gift cards to buy for Christmas this year for teachers, nieces & nephews, and friends. We crafters are all about the presentation, you know, so I made this mitten ornament/gift card holder.
I made a template from an ornament I had purchased a few years ago, then I traced it onto some My Favorite Felt. I cut out two and machine stitched them together, leaving the top open. I embellished the front with more My Favorite Felt and three Die-namics: Hearts a Plenty, Let It snowflake Trio, and Small Scallop Border.
Before I adhered the scallop border to the top, I inserted an eyelet in the corner for the twine. I wanted to be sure it would be sturdy when hung on a tree. Then I covered the eyelet with the felt scallops and sewed a button in the corner. The tag was made using the Merry & Bright set.
I finished the edge of the mitten with four strands of red embroidery floss. Beate has a great tutorial for the stitching HERE on her blog.
So, now after the recipient uses the gift card, she or he will have an ornament for the tree! :)
That's it for today! Thank you so much for taking the time during this busy season to spend some time with me! :)
Have a fabulous Friday!
