To end my week of Holiday Felt projects, I wanted to share the second pair of Felt Mittens I made. If you missed them, I created these fun graphic MERRY Felt Mitten last week and today I am sharing a slightly more sophisticated version, my DIY Felt Snowflake Mittens.

Measure the space you have available on the top portion of your mitten. Then, transfer those dimensions onto your felt.
Recall your elementary days of cutting out paper snowflakes and replicate that with the felt. Fold the felt as many times as you would like and then cut out fun shapes and lines with your scissors. Once your snowflake is completed, cut in right down the middle.
Since you will be using a *Fabric Adhesive, cut out two pieces of narrow cardboard and insert into the palm of the mittens. This will prohibit the glue from adhering both sides together.
Flip your snowflakes over and generously apply a layer of the fabric fusion. Follow directions for dry time. After my snowflakes were dry, I slightly picked at the edges and applied another few drips here and there under the corners to really make sure they were on there nice and snug.
I waited a full day to try them on and they were snug as a bug on the rug!
Note: Fabric fusion is truly a miracle fabric glue and I think these mittens would hold up to light/normal use just fine. However, if you plan to build a snow fort or tunneling across your backyard while wearing them, you might want to give the letters a quick whip stitch for extra hold in place power.
