Every year I make these mitten Christmas ornaments. They are a great way for me to use my torn and stained vintage linen scraps I have been squirreling away all year!
I am always saving vintage hankies, and embroidered linen that is stained or has holes, I just can't bare to throw them out when some portion is useful
This is the perfect project to use some of those scraps
I drew a free hand pattern of a mitten 5 1/2" X 4 1/2", cut two, sewed them together and embellished
These were from an old tablecloths and an antique quilt
An old hand towel, table cloth, and quilt
Hanky, hand towel, and tablecloth
I adorned these with vintage lace, buttons, flowers, and jewelry
They are hung on a coffee mug holder in my booth at Orange Tree Antiques
I also box them up pretty for hostess gifts over the holidays.
I think we could call these "Second Hand Mittens"!
