Last year I had several ideas for sewing projects but never had time to get them all made for Christmas. I am determined to get ahead with Christmas makes this year and have been experimenting making some felt snowmen. I tried different ways of sewing the head and body together and am happy with these ones so shall be making more of them in various colours.
I used Lawn Fawn stitched circle dies and was pleased with how easily they cut the felt. The hats were cut with a Tim Holtz snowman stamp and die set. I realised brads made perfect eyes and noses. I found some star and heart brads amongst my brad collection and they make lovely buttons. On the red one which was the first one I made I did use buttons. I cut and fringed a strip of felt to make the scarves, I shall be making some of these for myself as well as to sell.
