It's the last day of the sew along-and the funnest day. Today we are putting all the fun finishing touches on our snowman.
1. Start with the scarf. For the scarf I cut a long piece of fabric (3 x 44”). You could use fleece or felt too or even a real scarf. Tie around your snowman’s neck. Secure with glue if you would like (I didn't secure mine that makes it so that I could change it if I wanted to). I tied mine in a double knot. Cut slits in the ends to look like fringe.(If you don’t have small mittens around don’t panic. You could free hand one, or find a clipart one and enlarge or reduce the size to what you want).
4. Turn these right sides together and sew a 1/8” seam all around leaving the cuff part open. Clip to the stitching between the thumb and the rest of the glove (this is very important if you want it to look right when you turn it). Clip the rest of the curves with small slits (don’t cut your stitching). Turn right side out.Slide onto the ends of the dowel (I couldn’t get the dowel to go through the stuffing so the dowel is behind the stuffing at the back of the mitten). To secure I first put some hot glue around the dowel where the mitten ends and pinched the mitten around to stick to the hot glue. Next I put a rubber band around the end of the mitten for extra hold.
