Email Entry into Sensational Sewing Challenge

Hello friends! My seven year old sister, Beth, made a gorgeous little snowman out of felt to enter into my sewing challenge for ‘Christmas’. I decided to run the Christmas themed challenge throughout January to give people who were too busy to enter their Christmas makes over the festive season, a chance to join in! I would love to have you join this month, so maybe you could make a decoration to add to your Christmas tree this year? Maybe you made something small during December for your table or house that showed a bit of Christmas cheer? Enter all these things in Sensational Sewing Challenge – you may enter as many times as you like (each time with a new creation) and stand a chance to win the prize I am offering! Go HERE for more details!  But now onto Beth’s email entry...

It is very easy to make this little snowman.  Cut two body shapes out of white felt.  Cut out two arm shapes (twigs) out of brown felt and a carrot nose from orange felt.  Sew two funky buttons to the front body shape and sew the nose onto the face.  Attach the brad eyes and thread your needle.  Using straight stitch, sew all around your snowman and don’t forget to pin the arms inside so you can sew them into the body!  Leave a little gap open so you can stuff the snowman.  Finish off.  Make a little beanie out of jersey material and attach a pom-pom to the top.  Make a scarf out of jersey material too and attach to snowman.  You are done!  Use as a pretty little Christmas decoration for 2012’s tree!

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
