Place the two pieces of felt together (snowflake on top), and starting in the upper right corner, whip stitch down the first side of the mitt, sewing the two pieces together. Turn the corner and continue whip stitching the two pieces together for 3 ½”. Leave a 2” opening in the middle for the ice scraper (continue adding decorative stitching to one side) then finish whip stitching the bottom 3½” together. Turn the corner and whip stitch the second side together. Turn the last corner and whip stitch the first 1½” together. Continue adding decorative stitching to one side of the felt for 6”. This is the arm opening. Whip stitch the last 1½” together. Break off yarn. Last, add decorative stitching to the two opening sides that were previously skipped.
