This was the piece I made for the ‘Unofficial: Home for the Holidays’ collaboration. It was based on a Ukrainian children’s Christmas story, The Mitten by Jan Brett.
A young boy wears the new mittens he got for Christmas out into the snow and promptly loses one. A mole finds it and is first to move into its snug interior, followed by a rabbit, a hedgehog, an owl, a badger, a fox, a bear, and lastly a mouse. The mouse’s whiskers tickle the bears nose and he sneezes. All the animals are flung out from their woolly cave and as the mitten sails through the air, it is spotted by the young boy who takes it home again, wondering how it became so enormously stretched out. We love this story and my younger children find it hilarious!!
