I went over to a friend's house after dinner and she showed me how to make the border, the knots and the loop at the top of these felt ornaments. She and I made the four Christmas trees above while we visited.
I got up early this morning, eager to try and do this by myself before I forgot everything my friend showed me. I made two mittens like the one above before the girls got up.
I am pretty thrilled. I've never learned to sew anything by hand so this is very exciting to me. And I am looking forward to sharing my new skills with Norah. I think she will really enjoying making these ornaments.
