From Rags to Mittens

I felted an old knit coat of Julia's - I had knit it of wool and mohair in seed stitch. I traced a mitten shape around one of her mittens and added some extra because the felt was so thick. Then I decorated them with embroidery stitches - spider web, chain stitch, herringbone, french knots and lazy daisy. I stitched them together with blanket stitch.

I'm not sure she will wear them because they are a little tight and a tad too thick. If she doesn't, I'll use them to decorate a wreath or to top the tree.
