Design Team: Lisa Somerville Week 7

Lisa Somerville's Mitten

Our Craftwell Design Team has done it again! Lisa Somerville came up with an adorable ornament idea, just in time for the holidays! See below: 

‘tis the Season Mitten
Designer – Lisa Somerville

Sticky Back Canvas
Wire (I used a Bind-It-All Coil)
Fishing Line (or thread)
Stamp – shown Pink by Design Old Time Christmas
Pop Up Glue Dots (not shown)
Filler for Mitten (not shown, I used dried peas)
Ranger Black Archival Ink (not shown)
Sewing Machine (not shown)
Heat ‘n Bond (not shown)
Iron (not shown)

Mittens/Cuff –
Circle – eCraft Fundamentals 1

eCraft Settings:
Pressure Setting – 5
Tab Density –0
Tab Width – 0
Multi Cut – 0
Blade Cap – on
Card Stock Stabilizer used for Mitten only

Adhere Heat ‘n Bond to Fabric with Iron, let cool.  Cut Mittens from fabric using eCraft, set aside.  (not shown)

 Open SCAL 3, add 5 Circles, cut from Sticky Back Canvas.

 Open eCraft Software add tag, cut from Sticky Back Canvas; import Cuff cut from Sticky Back Canvas (not shown)

With material right sides together, stitch mittens using sewing machine; trim ends and any bulky edges

Turn right side out, and stuff; seal with a piece of 3L Adhesive

Peel backing from Sticky Back Canvas Cuff, adhere as shown.

Adhere 2nd Cuff as shown

Embellish as desired.

I created a 5 Petal Flower using the cut circles (watch for a future video) and adhered to the mitten with Pop Up Glue Dots, added a button to the center.  The sentiment is stamped in Black Archival on the Sticky Back Canvas Tag, and adhered under the button.  To hang, punch holes in cuff and insert wire.  Tie Twine in button holes; adhere in place with Pop Up Glue Dots.

Beautiful work Lisa! Are you making or buying your ornaments this year? have you done anything with fabric? Link us up!
