Finally, you're finished! Go ahead and try it on your doll - it's super cute, right? To make the costume extra cute, make pants from white fleece too and maybe a white shirt that has brown long sleeves. Oh and what about brown mittens too? (To make mittens from a sock, see THIS post.)
I hope you had fun making this snowman costume. If you hadn't already guessed, its supposed to look like the popular Olaf from Frozen. Hopefully you already figured that out though! Would love to know who downloads this pattern, so for those who do, please leave a comment. Thanks!
