LOVELY SNOWMAN




I wanted to make the girls special snowmen shirts to wear this winter.  I made this snow man sweatshirt 5 or 6 years ago for My oldest and she wore it several years and now My youngest has worn it a few years and it has become a little sad.  So I decided to change the design a little and this is what I came up with.



I just free hand cut two hats, two noses, and two scarves.  I dug four medium size buttons out of my collection.





Then I used two different size circles to trace around.   Notice that is one of Sweet Hubby's old work shirts, never waste anything.



I cut four large and four small circles of each of the fabrics.  These are going make flowers for the snow"lady's" hat.



I folded each of the circles like this, then rounded the edges.



The one of the left has had the edges rounded.



Then the circles for folded in half and layered.





Sew the four circles together.  I just hand stitched it but you could easily do it on the machine.



I did the same with the smaller circle and attached it to the top of the large circle with a button in the middle.



I layed out the placement of the snowmen next and glued with a craft glue to hold in place.



Next I used embroidery thread and went along the edge of the hat, nose, and scarf.  I then came back in and made his mouth.



Finally, I attached the flower with a pin so I can take it off to wash. This is the final product, The girls are very excited with them.

Thanks for stopping by my blog - that's how I found you. Those shirts are too cute, but I'm not sure I'd have the skill and patience to make something so adorable. You have talent!

Very cute! My girls would love these.

Katie said...

They are darling! I love it and it's so nice for all of winter. Since you made one previously, can you tell me how the felt washed? Did you handwash? Did the colors bleed?

Cha Cha said...

Great question Katie, the felt did great. The shape stayed the same and the color did not run, and to be honest the first one was only glued on. I decided to sew this time just to make it a little more special. Thanks for all the sweet comments, you guys are so encouraging.
