Step by step tutorial offered by Laura from Dacian Moon Handmade
- striped sock
- white fabric
- filling material (I used some cotton pads broken into pieces)
- black paint
- needle and thread
Measure the width of the socks on the fabric folded in two…
… and cut it out.
Sew the two sides together, letting an opening on the upper part.
Turn it to the other side.
Shred the cotton pads into small pieces…
… and fill the sewed white fabric with it.
Tie the open end with the ribbon.
Use a thread to separate the 3 snowballs of the snowman.
Cut off the upper part of the sock …
… then cut that part in half.
Dress the snowman with one, as a shirt.
Put the other one on its head, as a cap.
Use the ribbon to tie the cap to keep it in place.
Draw eyes, mouth and buttons on your snowman using black paint.
Check out this adorable sock snowman. You can give this to a friend or family member…. or enjoy it for yourself.
