Project Instructions

  • 1
    Download and print project template. Cut out all pieces from template onto the indicated color of felt.
  • 2
    Find 3 buttons in the package of the same size (1/2 inch works best) that coordinate with the Neon Blue felt. Place to the side.
  • 3
    Blanket-stitch the body pieces together with 3 strands of Blanco embroidery floss from bottom left to bottom right. Leave the flat bottom open.
  • 4
    Stuff the body with Poly-fil so it is full but not overly stuffed.
  • 5
    Pin the bottom felt piece to the open bottom of the snowman and blanket-stitch the bottom closed. Now the snowman will stand.
  • 6
    Blanket-stitch around the arms leaving the top 1 inch open when thumbs are up. Slightly stuff the hands and the arms. Do not stuff the center 2 inch of the arm piece. Finish stitching the arms shut.
  • 7
    Glue the center of the arms to the center back just under the neck. With the White thread, stitch the shoulders of the arms to the body. Stitch the underarms to the body as well.
  • 8
    Cut a 1 inch x 12 inch strip of Neon Blue felt. Cut five horizontal 3/4 inch slits in each end of the strip for the tails of a scarf. Tie the scarf around the neck of the snowman and spot glue as necessary.
  • 9
    Glue 3 buttons down the front of the snowman evenly.
  • 10
    Glue the Orange nose to the center of the face. Glue five Black pom poms to the face for a smile. Glue the wiggle eyes just above the nose to the face.
  • 11
    Cut a 2-1/2 inch x 6 inch strip of Neon Blue. Glue it into a tube, by overlapping and gluing the ends by 1/4 inch.
  • 12
    Fold 1/4 inch of one edge up of the tube for a hat brim. Glue the tube with the folded edge facing front to the top of the head of the snowman slightly hiding the eyes.
  • 13
    Gather the open edge of the scarf 1/2 inch from the end and tie with White thread.
