Felt Mitten Decoration

I'm so pleased with this little Christmas felt Mitten I've made and I was surprised at how quick and easy it was to put together.
  I found the tutorial on the wonderfully talented Beate's blog Fresh & Fun.  The tutorial's I've seen all use the nested mitten nestabilities but I don't have these however I do have a Mitten shaped card template which you can purchase from The Cutting Cafe'.  I basically just used the top layer and
 sized the mitten,  duplicated it,  flipped it then printed it off. I then attached the templates to some felt using masking tape and followed Beate's tutorial which you can find here.
I've now had a go at hand sewing and can do the button hole stitch! I just used normal sewing thread instead of embroidery thread but will be purchasing some very soon.
Now the little rolled flower was made using organza ribbon and I'm going to do a little tutorial at some point this week ;0)
I'm super pleased with the little picture embellishments and will be making more for sure. I just got a couple of pics from the internet sized them, printed them off and then added some 3D gloss! I then just made a little hole at the top to add my thread.
I hope you like this decoration I will be making some more so watch this space ;0)
