If you're like me, you probably have tons of scrap fabrics left over from past projects that you just can't seem to throw away. I usually make doll clothes out of them, but when I saw this pattern I thought this would a fun and different way to use up those scraps.
Then a few weeks ago, when the weather turned a little colder, I finally felt ready to sew these together. But, of course, I couldn't find the pattern or the instructions. After searching and cleaning a bit, I decided that I must have thrown them away. "Oh well," I thought, "it really doesn't matter because I usually change things when I'm sewing anyway." So, below is the outcome of pattern-less snowmen.
This snowmen's coat and hat were from a fleece scarf one of my children made in a sewing class.
This snowmen is wearing a nice warm refashioned wool sweater that a daughter left at home. I had to work around a few pin holes that the sweater had but don't you think that this little snowman looks toasty warm in his winter looking attire?
The scarf above was refashioned from a belt that I took off a jacket.
In several of the snowmen's hands, I found some small ornaments that I attached with a few quick stitches. I think these scraps of fabric made some pretty adorable snowmen. Yes, snowmen from your scraps take on lots of personalities and are a fun way to use up your leftovers.
Now that these snowmen are completed, if my children don't claim all of them, I'll be donating a few to my favorite winter charity, Festival of Trees. Happy scrapping!
