Freebie Friday ! Mitten ornament Pattern

It’s nearly Christmas ! It’s starting to get colder outside…

Over a year ago I managed to get a mild case frostbite on my hands , and ever since when the weather get’s cold and wet my hands don’t work as well as they should… So last week I went gloves shopping… and you know what ? I couldn’t find any I liked !

So I made some ! I came across this amazing tutorial by Feathering my Nest and turned an old jumper I loved but had shrunk in the wash into mittens ! Genius !

While I was mitten creating I made some smaller ones.. and thought I would make a felt version into a garland ( with added glitter of course ! )
