Blue Yule Mitten Ornaments

Crazy-quilt mittens make pretty ornaments. They’re unexpected ways to conceal gift cards and cash gifts, too. With little pieces of fleece and velour and some sparkling embroidery, you can stitch an identical pair.

Assemble the Mittens

1. Cut out the mitten fronts. With right sides together and using 1/4" seam allowances, sew a mitten front to a velour mitten back, leaving wrist edges unstitched. Clip the curves and turn right side out.

2. For hanging loops, cut ribbon into two 5-1/2" lengths. Fold one ribbon in half and baste to the top edge of a mitten front with raw edges even. Place a mitten inside a lining with right sides together.

3. Sew around the top edge using a 1/4" seam allowance and leaving an opening for turning. Pull mitten through opening and then work the lining back inside the mitten. Sew the opening closed. Repeat for the other mitten. Press lightly.
