    Mark eye placement on top pieces. To mark the quill placement, measure inward 4 inches from pointed side draw a perpendicular line. Measure another .5 inches to the right and draw another line. Repeat 3 more times. Cut out 10 strips from the brown fleece that are 3 inches wide by 4.5 inches high and mark each one down the middle. Place the first one's line over the line on the mitten top and stitch together on the line:

    Then fold each mitten top over like shown with the first strip folded out. Hold a ruler over it's seam (to avoid cutting it) and then cut .5 inch strips to make the quills. Repeat with remaining brown strips, one section at a time.

    Now take the large thumb piece and with right sides facing pin it along one side of a mitten top. Pin this piece to the opposite side of the other mitten top (so you don't end up with two mittens for the same hand!)

    Insert the lining into the outer mittens and fold the raw edges of the cuffs inward 1/2 inch and pin together.

    You can either machine stitch around 1/8 inch from the cuff edge or ladder stitch them together by hand. Hand sew the pom-pom nose on to each mitten.

    Now hands can be cosy warm and cute too!
