Hi everyone, we have another free mini project for you to try! This week it's how to make these adorable mini snowmen!
You will need: white felt, scissors, paper, sewing machine, needle & thread, marker pen & beads, items to decorate: ribbon & buttons.
Step 1: make a template for your snowman, I drew around a gingerbread man cutter but 'rounded' the bottom, (see pic)
Step 2: I sewed around the outline, if you catch the paper it will easily tear away from the stitching. Do not cut the snowman out just yet, then I used a blanket stitch ( on my machine) to sew around the edge. Now cut the snowman out.
Step 3: I used a black marker pen for it's eyes and mouth, an orange bead for its nose, tartan ribbon for its scarf, I joined the hands together (I'm making bunting) and then sewed a plastic 'candy cane' button over the hands. This would make a great hanging decoration on the tree or put multiple togetehr for bunting like I have, or even on the front of a greetings card!
