What sweet mittens!
Reminds me of a book I used to read to my daughter, "The Princess Gown": (from Amazon):

a story about a contest in which a princess will select a wedding gown from among offerings sewn by many of the kingdom's tailors. Hanna's family has gone into debt to make their entry, and when the girl notices a tiny spot on the otherwise gorgeous dress, they fear that all is ruined. However, she saves the day by suggesting that they embroider a squirrel on one side of the skirt and an acorn on the other. Since the princess has a pet squirrel, this personalization proves the deciding factor in her selection of Papa Abraham's gown, the appointment of Hanna's family as Embroiderers to the Princess, and a new fashion at court.
