A Crafty Creative Christmas Guest Flamingo Toes

Have you entered your Christmas projects here?

Hey everyone I am so excited to announce today's guest who needs no announcing the she is famous for all her anthro knock offs miss Bev from Flamingo Toes. I had the opportunity to actually meet Bev a  while back and she is the neatest person! Please welcome Bev!

Hello Me Making Do readers!!My name is Bev and I blog over at Flamingo Toes!.

I am so excited to be here today as part of Heather's A Crafty Creative Christmas series!!I was lucky enough to meet Heather a few months ago and she is just as sweet in real life and she is on her blog! :)

So I really am loving all the cute gift wrap ideas Anthro has right now. I made their cute gift tags a few weeks ago - and I've had my eye on their sweet Mittens Ribbon too!I thought they'd be perfect to share here.
Here is my version:
And here's Anthro's:
Aren't they fun?
Here's what you'll need to make your own set of tiny mittens!
Old Sweater Felt Yarn Sewing machine (or you could probably do it by hand if you want)
Draw out a small mitten pattern. Cut out 4 mittens of felt and four from the sweater fabric.(if your sweater is really thick, you can skip the felt.)
Make sure you cut out 2 facing left and 2 facing right.
Take a set of mittens and place them right sides together with the matching pieces of felt.Sew across the top edge with a small seam.
Turn the pieces right sides out, like the mitten on the right (above). Place the two pieces with the right sides (sweater sides) together.Sew around the mitten, leaving the top open.
Clip the part point between the thumb and mitten and trim around the curves.Turn right side out.
Repeat with your other mitten.
Cut a length of yarn the length you'd like for your package. Knot each end and sew the knots to the inside of the mittens.
Now you've got a super cute gift decoration!!
Wrap up your boxes with your super cute mittens!
I hope you like them!
I'd love for you to stop by Flamingo Toes sometime and say hi! You can check out my other Tutorials here.
Thanks so much for including me in the series Heather!!
