1) Print out pattern to your printer. Cut out pattern shapes. Pin to fabric and cut pattern shapes from fabric.
2) Take the white cuff piece and embroider the holly along the scalloped edge using two strands of floss. For creating the green leaves use the lazy daisy stitch. For the red holly berries use French knots. See paper pattern piece for placement of holly.
3) With one strand of black floss, use French knots to make the two eyes and three buttons on the snowmans body. With small stitches sew the orange nose onto the face of the snowman with one strand of the orange floss. See paper pattern piece for placement of features.
4) Pin the snowman onto the mitten. See paper pattern piece for placement. Wrap the red scarf around the snowmans neck. See illustration A. Push in a small amount of cotton into the snowmans body. Using a single strand of white floss and starting at his head, sew along the edge using the blanket stitch. Stop sewing when you almost reach the top of his head. Add more cotton into his body if needed. Finish off where you first started stitching.
5) With small stitches, sew the snowmans hat onto the top of his head with one strand of black floss. See paper pattern piece for placement of hat.

Starting at either top corner, blanket stitch the pieces together along the sides of the mitten with two strands of red floss. Stop at next corner. Leave the top of the mitten open. See illustration B.
10) Continue backstitching only along the top edge of the back mitten piece. See illustration C. When you reach the corner where you first started blanket stitching, continue backstitching together the top edges of the cuff to the front of the mitten. Finish off at other corner.
