Part 10 Snow People

on tree
Supplies:
  • White felt
  • Pearl cotton size 5 embroidery thread
  • beads
  • needle thread
  • fur yarn
  • scraps of homespun fabric and black fabric
Order of events for making the boy:
  1. Cut three circles from felt (all three are different sizes, from small to med to large).
  2. Stitch on eyes, mouth and buttons. You can make either a French knot, colonial knot or use a bead as I did (I used the stitching of the beads on to stitch the circle together at the same time).
  3. Stitch on 1 piece of brown size 5 pearl cotton through snow person for arms (this one piece makes both arms). Tie knots next to felt to keep the arms from pulling out. Fray ends of thread for hands.
  4. Tie on scarf. At first I thought fuzzy fur yarn would work for this, but it bothered me something fierce. So, by the time I was done, I cut a strip of home spun, frayed the edges and stitched a bead on it. I like that much better. Do whichever you like best.
  5. Next, I cut two rectangles from black cotton, frayed the edges and stitched them on. This became his hat.
  6. Attach hanger; done (see new scarf).
If making the girl:
  1. Cut three circles from felt (all three are different sizes, from small to med to large).
  2. Stitch on eyes and mouth; you can make either a French knot, colonial knot or use a bead as I did (I also stitch circles together at this time).
  3. Stitch on 1 piece of brown size 5 pearl cotton through snow person for arms (this one piece makes both arms). Tie knots next to felt to keep the arms from pulling out. Fray ends of thread for hands.
  4. Attach apron; this is a piece of homespun fabric with frayed edges that was gathered.
  5. Hair is green fuzzy fur yarn. I thought this might look like someone had used fir tree branches for the hair. I stitched on three pieces of this yarn and then braided them.
  6. Attach hanger; done.

  2. I think the homespun looks very nice for the scarf. That furry yarn really is tough to work with!
