Mittens for Sale


Mittens for Sale measures 7.5" tall. Made from sugared cotton batting, the snowman features a sculpted paper maché carrot nose, a stitched smile, and bead eyes. I sewed 5 red tiny buttons to his belly ... and stitched a red wool heart to his chest. He sports a red fleece scarf. The snowman holds a wire garland featuring 3 pair of wooden mittens. The aged muslin tag tied to the garland with grubby baker's twine reads:
Mittens

Each mitten has been painted and aged for timeworn appeal.
