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!

  7. He's adorable and worth the struggle...says the one who didn't do the felting, lol!

  8. 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.
