Mittens

Here’s another little something I pulled out of the craft room. I think I got the kit for 6 of these mittens at the AQS Quilt Show in March, so it has not been sitting around too long. The kit came with everything I needed except, oddly enough, a needle. I like embroidering designs on felt because the fabric seems to encourage a more folk-art style, which means I don’t worry as much about things like even stitches.  I had forgotten how much fun it can be to work with a needle and thread, and a small project like this lets you get a sense of accomplishment in no time.

The stitching got completed on the body of the mitten for 3 of the 6. I still need to cut out and attach some cuffs, embellish those, and then stitch the front to the back. It was a rainy day here, and that lent itself to sitting down with some needlework and the obligatory cat on my lap.
