Christmas Ornaments

Here are a few samples for the Crafts @the Library workshops next week. I have made loads of the stockings and Christmas Puddings before, but the mitten is a new pattern. I made them from blue felt as it makes a change from the red and green you see everywhere at Christmas. Each of these are doubled, which makes a little pocket for a sweet or a candy stick to poke out the top.
The mittens remind me of some mittens made of coloured paper (and I think coloured with a decorative pattern) connected by a piece of yarn which I made in school when I was about 5! My mother put them up on tree year after year. I wouldn't be suprised if she still does!
