Snowman Pillow

I managed to sneak in a little sewing time for myself this holiday season and made this snowman pillow. I adapted a Fons and Porter pattern for my pillow. A super ease holiday accessory that I can keep out all winter long.

Supplies
  • Fabric 1/2 yard
  • Chenille - 10 inch square
  • Ball fringe - 2 yards
  • Buttons for eyes and mouth
  • Scrap orange for nose

Cut fabric border at 4.5 inches, I used a mitered corner but this can be done without miters.

Sew buttons for eyes and mouth in expression of your choice, I used 6 buttons for the mouth and free hand drew a nose from orange plaid, then raw edge appliqued.

I find it easier to attach the ball frince on first, then sew a back to the pillow front. For the back I just layered the same fabric as border, put a double inch hem then sewed front to the back and inserted a pillow.

Instant Snowman that did not require me to find my gloves, or go outside.

What a fun pillow! There's no way something that cute would survive these boys! I'll have to wait until they're all away at school, before I can start making things for myself! <3

Oh, this is so cute! I think that I will make one like this when I have a sewingmachine again. (mine burnt..and I miss it so much...)
By the way, my boys (3 of them)sure would love it too, no way that they are trowing with it or so..strange! I made cussions before and they respect them and like them. I even can inmagine that the children fight over who can use such a lovely snowman pillow!
