Use yarn to tie together remaining stitches, tuck in ends.

For center pads:

Use worsted weight and crochet hook.  10 single crochet in a magic loop, join with slip stitch, chain one and 2 single crochet all the way around for 20 stitches, join with slip stitch.  Sew to center of mitt and weave in ends.  Add claws where you see fit.  I just looped yarn over the top edge until it was thick enough.
