12 Days of Christmas 🎄 Day 12


Day 12

Welcome to the last day of my 12 Days of Christmas. Today's project is another adorable snowman!  I put mine on a Buffalo Plaid tea towel from Dunroven House. But this sweet snowman can be used for so many different projects! Make a special pillow, apron, mug rug.... so many possibilities! Some supplies I like to use and have on hand in my sewing room for this project included my applique scissors from Olfa, Flexifuse, brown and white thread, and a healthy supply of scrap fabric for the applique design. To make my Mitten Snowman you will need to download the PDF pattern. It can be found on the Quilt Doodle website and also in my Etsy shop.
So let's get started...
Trace all of the deign shapes onto the paper side of your fusible web.

Rough cut the shapes out and iron onto the wrong side of the different color fabrics.

Cut out the shapes.

Lay out the design shapes following the layout sheet in the pattern.

I like to use a buttonhole stitch along all the raw edges of the design. I used white thread to go around the snowman and brown thread around all of the rest.

I do like how the stitching finishes the edge of the design.

I used a pencil to mark where the eyes and mouth will be. It will make it so much easier to embroider.

I embroidered French knots for the eyes and mouth with #12 black pearl cotton.

I hope that you have enjoyed the projects and recipes and have found some time to do a couple of them. It's been fun sharing with you family recipes and some new projects. I have a link below to a Pinterest board that has links to all of the projects, also included are the 12 Days of Christmas projects from a couple years ago. There's all sorts of fun items to work on for the holidays. You could even get a jump on next year! Lol...
