'Tis the Season - eCraft Mitten Ornament

So, what are you crafting for Christmas this year?  I've always got a list of things I want to create or at least try to make before the gift giving season rolls around, that way I know what I want to mass produce.  I always like to include a little something that's hand crafted with my gifts.  This might just be one of those gifts I mass produce this year!



This week, myself and the other eCraft Design Team members were challenged to create something Christmas Themed with the eCraft , using fabric and stamps from Pink by Design, our November Sponsor.  I'll be honest with you, I haven't really sewed anything in a LONG time.  Maybe an occasional button here or there, some ripped hoddies and jeans, but actually sewn, nope not in years!  The first Christmas I was married I sewed Christmas Tree skirts for everyone for gifts, and let me tell you the eCraft sure would have come in handy back then to cut all those squares!

I used the Winter Mitten Set from Creations by AR as my template, cutting the cotton material for the mitten with the eCraft, then cutting the Cuff and Tag from Sticky Back Canvas.  Not having any stuffing on hand, I filled the mitten with dry peas, sealed with 3L's Adhesive Sheets, and added the Cuffs.  To embellish the mitten I created a 5 Petal Flower using 2" Circles I cut from Muslin Fabric.  Watch for a future tutorial on how to create the flowers!  Then added some Buttons, the stamped tag and a hanger created from Bind it All Coils.  Click here for downloadable directions and a supply list.

For added inspiration using this weeks Challenge Theme, be sure to stop by the eCraft Blog to see what the other designers created this week.
