If you liked the Fruit Stitch Mitts we showed you on last week, you will love these Floral Stitch Mitts! This pattern contains two vintage inspired floral designs, and two sizes of mitt. The embroidery on the designs is simple enough for beginners, using Straight Stitch, French Knots, Back Stitch, and comes with stitch diagrams. The star shaped pattern is the larger size. We stitched these mitts on Crossroads Denim, which is a great weight both for embroidery and for heavier duty items like kitchenware. The mitts are made with Insul-bright to protect your hands. The outer fabrics are quilted around the design to the Insul-bright and lining. We used invisible thread so that the quilting remained unobtrusive. Bias tape is used for the binding and loop. You can make your own, but we used 1/2 inch double fold generic bias tape. As fun as it is to use different colors of embroidery floss, we wanted to see how the designs looked in one color. We love this gold design on the green! Another option for embroidery would be to use your machine to embroider the designs. This contest is now closed.
