Ornament for the Circle Weekly Challenge. Printing Fabric on my Imagine.

Only 3 more days until Christmas.  I can't believe it's almost here.  It's my favorite time of year.  I love all the crafting and baking surrounding it.  Anyway, I want to share my project I made for the Weekly Challenge.  I started out by Ironing Heat and Bond to the back of a 12x12 piece of fabric.  I used canvas, but after the Imagine only cut once, I had to go over it with my scissors.  If I would have used plain white cotton fabric, it would have cut it out completely.  Plus I don't think I had my blade set right.  Anyway I used the mittens off of Snow Angel and printed and cut them on the fabric, then I removed the paper back from the heat and bond.  I used silver thread to sew together the edges.  To dress it up, I cut the poinsettia off of Winter Woodland 2x along with the leave layer.  I cut those at 1.5".  Layered them with pop dots, and ribbon and attached to the mitten.  Iadded a ribbon hanger with hot glue, and glued on the bells.  I then stuffed with tissue paper to add fullness and tucked in some peppermint stick.  Hope you like it, Beth.
