Another Last-Minute Christmas Gift

It is amazing what you can do when you are creative!

Take these fire-breathing dragon mitts (idea from Martha Stewart).

Buy a pair of mittens from the dollar store.

Cut out some felt 'dragon-spine' shapes and sew by hand on the top part of the mitt.

I used two colours, sewed them together
by machine and then hand sewed them to the mitts.

Sew on a felt tongue and some button eyes (or you can embroider on the eyes)

Accompany them with a short chapter book- My Father's Dragon (1948) by Ruth Stiles Gannett.

the first in a trilogy....
but this one is my favourite of the three

Put them in a nice tin...

and there you go!

A perfect gift for a little one!

Here's another colour combination.
