Ornament #3 Felt Mitten Ornaments

ornament party

Day 3 brings us to another really cute one I saw on

I just had to make some for our tree! Felt mittens!

Felt Mitten Christmas Ornament Tutorial

This ornament tutorial uses a blanket stitch, which is pretty easy and makes your edges look super cute. I found a tutorial for hand sewing felt using a blanket stitch on Future Girl’s blog, which makes it easy to learn how to do it. So pop over there when you are ready to sew up your edges!


* Felt sheets in the colors you want your mittens (hobby lobby has some cute patterns and sparkly felt that you can use too!) *Sheet of white sparkly felt or white fur trim *contrasting thread/embroidery floss * needle *glue gun *stuffing (polyester fiberfill if you want the technical term!) *ribbon/yarn (for the loop)

1. print out the mitten template on BHG or draw your own. I used their template, but I made it a bit bigger, so my mittens are about 3x4”

2. cut out two layers


3. Use your contrasting thread to sew a blanket stitch (go here to learn how) around your mitten. Leave the top open for stuffing.

4. Stuff your mitten


4. Then continue your blanket stitch to close it up.DSC_2639

5. Cut a piece of your sparkly felt, or your white fur trim and attach it onto your mittenDSC_2640DSC_2642

6. Attach your ribbon or yarn on the back for the loop and you are DONE.



I love these!

I’m now addicted to the blanket stitch too! My sewing machine has this stitch as an option, but it’s a lot cuter if you do it by hand!
