the 12 days of mitten: day 11

We have found many uses for the mittens:
giving pseudo personal gift cards,
getting children high on sugar,
how about decorating the Christmas tree?

Well, not really tree!
We always get a live tree, so no luck for the photo shoot in mid-November!
But the mittens can also be used to decorate stair ways,
and a wreath! (like I did last year on this wreath.)

Over the years, we have put our mittens
on our tree, just to decorate it,
or to hide a little surprise just like you would in a stocking.
Because there is no limitation to color or personalization,
(after all it does not need to have a snow flake on it),
you can make them for every family member including pets.
We have some older ones with bones (cut piece of felt),
with a bear (charm), just let your imagination
and supply decide the direction.

These mittens made perfect decorations for Christmas tree
for family with young children and/or pets,
there are after all made of felt and unbreakable!

Go ahead,
make a mitten!
How to: here and here

Happy sewing!

Coffee, bunny and Easter eggs

Can anyone have too many bunnies, really? OK, maybe, but I am not there yet! I changed my cocoa station from last winter to a spring coffee ...
