i love to make ornaments, but this year i made some rather special ones. i had TONS of fleece left from various projects so i figured i'd make some personalized mittens.

all i did was outline a wooden shape of a mitten, stitched on the persons initial, sewed it, filled them with a little polyfill, sewed them closed, and hot glued the ribbon around it.  this is the batch from this morning, which is about 25-27... and i did some earlier this week for my bible study kids as well.

and as look at this, i see some of my skills leave a lot to be desired (like cutting straight lol) but that gives character!

These are adorable, you could always make them advent style and put a tiny gift in each with the numbers 1-24 on them.

Great way to use up scraps~
