One Day Ornament - The Mitten

This is a design by Sue Stehle of Sekas & Co., stitched on navy colored 14 count Zweigart Lincoln with Watercolors and #8 perle cotton.  The backing fabric is a blue cotton from my stash.

I put right sides together and stitched around the mitten, using regular navy blue sewing thread, leaving the top open.

I turned the mitten right side out and stuffed it.

 I made a hanger by braiding three strands of the perle cotton and stitched the top closed. Three inches tall and finished in a day.

Mittens are fun aren't they? Yours looks as if it is knitted in wool! Well done on a perfect finish.
