Sleepy Snowman


"Shhhh! This sweet little snowman is sleepy. He’s had a busy day playing in the freshly fallen snow, and now he’s resting, all cozy in his cap and scarf. Add a Sleepy Snowman to your holiday decor, or make one as a gift. He works up quickly, and is great for using up scraps. This pattern was designed for the Holiday Stashdown CAL 2017 on CAL Central. With this CAL, you can clean out your stash and end up with some beautiful items for holiday gifting!"

This is a sweet little project and hell soon be finding a home with the rest of my Snowman collection. The designer gives detailed photo instructions on how to embroider the face. And isnt that tiny hat and scarf set just precious? The designer suggests flattening the bottom of the snowman, but I usually tuck in a small baggie of rice to help stabilize mine.
