Lovable Felted Snowman


First up, just a reminder that I've got a giveaway going on right now to celebrate my 3 year blogiversary. If you haven't entered to win the Simply Screen Custom Silk Screen Kit from Plaid then click over to this post and simply leave a comment to enter!

Now after all my complaining and struggling with felting white wool and finally making a snowball, I thought you should see what I created with it.


Meet my snowman.


He's kinda warm and snuggly for someone who's supposed to be made from snow... but it's probably because he's got a big heart.



And a warm scarf.


I made him by using a combination of wet felting and needle felting. That's why he's much larger than a normal needle felted piece (at just over 9 inches tall). I also wove the scarf from scrap yarn and felted that too.


When I first started the snowballs this was the project I had in mind. As I struggled with the white wool I thought "if this actually works it will be the only snowman I make because this is too hard to felt" but now that he's all done I kinda want to make him some friends.

  6. OMG I do love your snowman to pieces!

    I should have guessed you had big plans for that snowball!

    And yes! You will find, just as I have, that you want to make more and more and more! I think it has something to do with that sweet happy face!

  9. Thanks for these comments, I love them! And for the felt conquering support.

    : )

    Cookie- I do have the sometimes bad habit of saying (or blogging) exactly what I'm thinking.

    Shirley- That's probably the sweetest thing you could have said about this snowman. Thank you!

    Kookie- I wish I had though of that one. I would have used it for the title of the post!!

    Craftymoose- LOL. I agree, just remind me that's it's worth it when I'm complaining about the felt while making another one.
