Snowman, Done!

Yes! My punched snowman is DONE! I really do love the way it turned out. I have to say, the hardest part was the binding. That little thumb was no joke. I can safely say, that I am considering adding a backing to cover my less than perfect stitching. Not lovin' the workmanship there, hahaha.
OK, we all know we are our worst critics, so I'm going to just set it aside and move on.
This is one of three mittens from the pattern Trio Of Woolen Mittens, you can find the pattern HERE.
I highly recommend using the wool applique method. After the three classes, the pattern, the 7 skeins of wool and the two skeins of hand dyed pearle cotton we're talking almost $150 for one mitten with a crappy binding. But on the bright side...that's still less than an hour at the shrink's! LOL! Hope you had a fun weekend; learned a new craft, finished a project or spent time with those you love. After all, isn't that what weekends are for? See you soon! B=)

Once you put a backing on, no one will ever know how crappy the binding is! I think he's just too darn cute! His teeth crack me up!



I love your punched snowman..but i'm afraid to do that.. tried it a few years back and punched a hole in my leg.. so haven't punched any more..Just make dolls..
Hurry and get the new fabric in.. I want to order some..

It looks great! I think you might be too hard on yourself, girl. There is a lot of us that couldn't even do it at all! Good for you...even though you are a snowman abuser.
