Sewing Project – Mr And Mrs Snowman Batting/Felt Ornaments

This easy to make snowman ornament is a great beginner project for someone who is just learning to sew or craft. He can be made from regular white craft felt or from batting. If machine sewing is not your cup of tea, you can certainly hand sew him together with small straight stitches.

Supplies Needed:

Pattern (see below)

Warm ‘N Natural Batting or White Cotton Felt

Disappearing Ink Marker

Poly Fiber Fill Stuffing

Fleece Fabric

5 Black 4 MM Beads

Orange Sculpey Clay Nose

Sewing Machine and Basic Sewing Notions

All-Purpose Craft Glue

Scissors

Thread or Gold Metallic Cord (for hanging)

Pattern: I free-handed my pattern in the traditional three stacked snowball shape onto paper and then cut out my pattern. Mine measures approximately 6″ tall by 4″ wide at his widest point.

Sewing and Stuffing Directions: Trace your pattern onto your batting or cotton felt using a disappearing marker. Lay two pieces of felt or batting together and pin to secure them. Using your sewing machine, straight stitch around your shape on the traced line. Using scissors, cut out your shape just outside of the stitched line. Cut a 1 1/2″ slit near the top of his head (horizontally) and turn him inside out. Lightly stuff him with poly fiber fill and hand sew the opening shut.

Now comes the fun part…you can decorate him however you would like. I decided to add a fleece hat and scarf to mine.

To Make The Fleece Hat and Scarf: I measured the circumference of his head and added on a 1/2″ to that measurement and his hat length is 4″ tall. So, use those measures to cut out a rectangular shape from your fleece fabric. Using your sewing machine, sew the short edges together so that you have a tube shape. Flip this tube inside out. Fold back 1/4″ of one end to resemble the hat cuff. Glue hat into place on top of his head and it should cover your stuffing slit. I used some needle and thread and hand cinched together the top of his hat and then glued a pom-pom on top. From fleece, cut out a piece that measures 1/2″ wide by 8″ long and tie it around his neck. You can trim the ends down or fringe them if desired.

To Make The Carrot Nose: Roll a small amount of orange Sculpey Clay between your fingers until it measures about the size of a green pea. Gently shape this ball into a triangular shaped cone measuring 1/4″ in length. Place nose on a baking sheet in a 200 degree oven and bake for approximately 10 minutes or according to package directions. Baking on low heat causes the clay to harden.

Eyes and Buttons: You can use black 4 MM beads like I used or you can use ‘real’ buttons. You will need to hand sew them on or use all-purpose craft glue to attach them.

Once you have your snowman ornament completed, thread a needle with some thread or gold metallic cording and make a hanging loop at the top of his hat. He is now ready to be hung onto your holiday tree.
