Day 20- Glove turned Snowman!

I have to start out this post by sharing a quick thought...
I've been keeping all of the ornaments for this give away in a mailing box in my craft closet. Once I've made it, photographed it, and then posted it, I put a little tag on it and place it in the box. Well today, I actually looked in the box-
Holy Cow! I want to win!
Actually, I just want to get a box like this in the mail one day. I wish I could be in the box when one of you opens it, just to see the look on your face! And to think we've still got 10 days to go...
{I might need a bigger box!}

Okay, on to today's addition...

This little gal is not made from the glove so much as from the middle finger of the glove-cause that's a bad finger anyway I gave it a good purpose!

I snipped off the fingers of a cheap pair of fleece white gloves-don't toss them, you can make a whole family.
And found an old baby doll sweater that had long out lived its purpose and started cutting it too. A sleeve for the hat and the ribbing for a scarf and around the bottom. Then I threw in a snippet of orange felt for a nose, some black seed beads for the face, and a few buttons just cause they looked cute.

Once you've cut the finger pieces off the glove, stuff each with a bit of "fluff" as it's called at my house-or stuffing, a cotton ball or two would work as well.
Stitch the bottom closed.
Sew or glue on your seed beads to give your snowman a face.
Cut your orange felt into a small triangle, add a bit of glue to the center and fold it in half. Once dry add it to the face too.

Sew or glue on your buttons, tie the scarf around the neck, glue a strip of ribbing onto the bottom and the hat piece onto the head. Grab a piece of thread and tie the top of the hat closed. If you leave the tails long enough, you can use these to make a hanger. And your done!

Get your kids involved in the decorating! You could completely omit the sewing with glue and this becomes a very do-able kid project for the weekend.

Happy Crafting!
