Felt Mitten Christmas Ornament with Eileen Hull

Hello! Have you seen Eileen Hull's newest Sizzix dies? They were just released at the beginning of the month and they are perfect for getting the jump on some holiday crafting. Previously, I shared a project made using the Snowman Die. This week, I used the Mitten Box die to make this cute felt Christmas tree ornament. It's a Bigz die so it cuts felt and other thicker materials effortlessly. I tried a new wool blend felt I found in an Etsy store named Benzie. I really like it! It's not as expensive as 100% wool felt but still feels soft and it comes in beautiful colors. I highly recommend it.

I die cut the mitten shapes, zig zags and heart from the felt using the Mitten Box Die. Then I just 'winged it', stitching on the details. I whip stitched the two halves together and stuffed it to give it dimension. This Die has lots of possibilities! Did you catch the Bog Hop that was part of the Release Party on July 1st? There were over 20 projects made with the new dies for your inspiration! Be sure to take a look if you missed it, also each week on the blog we have more creations to share with you too.
