www.cupcakesandlace.comCupcakes and Lace Snowman Stuffed Animal Directions:

  1. To make the hat and scarf:  Fold hat fabric in half (hamburger style).  Sew the side opposite of the fold.  Next use scissors to fringe, just one side of the hat about .5 inches apart from each other.  Use yarn or a strip of fleece to tie just under the fringed part of the hat.  Fold up the bottom of the hat once.  Your done with the hat!  Now fringe the two short ends of the scarf like you did with the hat!
  2. To make the snowman:  Sew three sides of the snowman leaving one short end completely open.  Turn it right side out.  Put some dried beans on the bottom.  Next fill the bottom of snowman with pillow stuffing and tie with yarn or strip of fleece.  Now its time to fill up the snowman’s head with stuffing.  Next sew the top of the snowman closed.
  3. Put the snowman’s hat and scarf on!
  4. Now its time to decorate!  Create a face, buttons and more.  Use your creativity to make the cutest snowman ever!
