My February celebration continues..
How would you like to win a snowman? I have one just for you. Leave me a comment as to the largest snowfall you have ever witnessed in inches. I would have to say mine was in the 70's. I think we got around 20 inches. We couldn't even see out of our window. So leave me a comment.
This blog candy ends February 11th 2011.
With the start of a new year I wanted to breath some life into my old sewing machine. Now when I say old I mean 20 years old. It no longer will zigzag but it created this birthday present for a dear friend. We share a love for snowmen so I wanted to find a pattern that would let release some pent up sewing needs.
I found this pattern online from Country Whims. I LOVE all of her patterns. This one is called
Feed The Birds and is available on her website.. HERE.
I added a felt heart and some little twigs I had in my stash. I love that his arms are tied in the middle to hold the heart.
I added a scarf, button eyes, felt hat and this curly nose. This was a work of heart that I really enjoyed. I have 10 more cut out to make as Christmas gifts next year. The Country Whims pattern is a small snowman so I redrew the pattern to make mine bigger.
I painted my fabric with Modge Podge and then sprinkled glass glitter on the fabric to complete my little guy.
Hopefully you aren't too bored with my post today.. I also wanted to remind you of my blog candy...
