I posted these cute little mitten Christmas ornaments three years ago, but I think they are so darn cute that they are worth another look!? I hope you agree.
They are a great way to use torn and stained vintage linen and lace scraps
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 old tablecloths and an antique quilt
And old hand towel, table cloth, and quilt
Hanky, hand towel, and tablecloth
I adorned these with vintage lace, buttons, flowers, and jewelry
Great hostess gifts for the holidays.
I think I could call these "Second Hand Mittens"!
