I’m going to an ornament/gift exchange on Sunday. I could have purchased something, but I always prefer handmade items so out came the embroidery machine again.
The designs for these fellows came from the Machine Embroidery Snowmen set by The Stitch Connection. They are made from scraps of batting. Is it possible a longarm quilter has batting scraps? I couldn’t find exactly the buttons I wanted and settled on these for the noses. They are a little large and my boys have told me they look more like penguins than snowmen. So in this case the proboscis does matter, and I made snow penguins. Both boys also asked why I gave them a crown of thorns. They aren’t buying that they are holly and fir halos or wreaths. I guess that is what comes from living with a house full of males!
