Hello Dear Friends & Followers
I hope all is well with you.
Since I haven't been doing any stitching since late October, I decided to do a bit of crafting. I love decorating for Christmas/Winter, but most of my decor pieces are Santa's of varying sizes, two Angel's, one Nativity and assorted pine boughs and wreaths. Not a lot to leave out for the rest of the winter months, so I'm trying to remedy that.
Here is my first try at making a more rustic winter....
He's made from natural cotton batting, stuffed with fill from a well laundered old pillow, he has a weighted bottom, a hat made from an old glove and adorned with jingle bells sewn on the finger tips and little snowflakes scattered on the front, a scarf made from purple felt and fringed on the ends with a bigger snowflake, sewn on button eyes and two more for buttons down the front and a felt carrot nose.
He stands 9" tall and is 7" wide at the base. His nose pokes out at 1 1/2".
I tucked the thumb inside the glove and stitched the opening closed then gathered the fingers together and secured with some thread.
I thought about a bit of blush for the cheeks and twig arms, but don't know yet since I can mock up he arms but pink cheeks are forever.
I think he's just to cute and want to make a few more.
Thanks for stopping by and having a peek.
