The joy's of being a "Room Mother" means you get to make fun things like snowman stockings...and many of them. I thought some of you may want to try this for your lil one's too. I started out with two dinner plate size "felt" circles. You can make yours as big or small as you like.I then made two hat shapes. You will only need one hat band and holly sprig for each stocking. The holly that you see here has two white dots. That is glitter glue and will dry clear (please forgive pictures quality)I then cut out some eyes and a carrot nose.One scarf.Keeping the two heads together I put them on top of one of the hats.Add your hat with your glued on rim and holly to the top.You should have one fancy hat on top of two heads with the plain hat on the bottom. I pinned these together.I cut little strips in my scarf just to give it "more cuteness".
I then glued my eyes , nose, and mouth on. I tilted the scarf...you know, for "more cutness". Now you can glue your stocking or sew it. I will sew mine (MIL's help). Just a reminder...leave the top of the hat open so you can stuff goodies inside. I wont turn mine inside out ...just sew right along the edges. After you sew /glue your stocking together make sure to glue down your hat brim on the front and back of your stocking. I added a little glitter glue on the eyes and holly berries. That is the white dots you see. They will dry clear and add a little "cuteness" to your snowman. I didnt show pictures , but you will need to sew/glue a ribbon or felt loop to the top of your hat for a hanger. I'm off to finish mine now and will show you the finished stocking. I also have a cute DIY goodie we will make to put inside.
Sweet friends...you know I love your comments! I am having to balance blogging during this Wonderful Season and that means having to limit my computer time. Please know that you and your comments are very special and I look forward to a slower pace soon so I can repay each and every one. ((hugs)) Susie~
