Fluffy the Snowman has arrived!

Here he is...Fluffy the Snowman!! I think that's a very appropriate name for him since he is made from fluffy polyester batting. The new "chapter" in my blog is ready so if you go here, you will find a tutorial so that you can make a Fluffy all your own.

I rarely throw anything away. I keep scraps of all sizes, all kinds of odds and ends, shop at garage and clearance sales and buy up all kinds of craft stuff. You know me for sometimes I am you!!! This project uses styrofoam balls which you might have to purchase but the rest is pretty much just scraps. He's really fun to make and goes together very quickly. This was a kids ornament class project so anyone can make this snowman!!

Each month throughout 2009, I will post at least one ornament for you to make for your tree or as gifts for friends. I will feature ornaments made from felt, cotton fabrics, clay, wood, etc. My personal collection of ornaments is over 600 and about 1/3 of them are ornaments I made over the past 40 years! If you make any of the ornaments, I would love to see pictures. :-)

One last thing for today - for all of you who are interested in the block of the month that I am going to be offering....................I will be sending out the PDF files for the January Snowman block on January 12th. Thereafter, blocks will be sent to you on the first of each month. I am amazed that there are so many of you that are interested in my project. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for all your lovely comments. What a great way to start a new year!!

Oh, and be sure to stop by tomorrow for "Tea and Stitches". On the first Wednesday of every month at 4:00 CST, I will host a little teatime and share a project, a recipe and perhaps a thought for the day or a recommendation for a good book!

Awww, Sandi, he's so cute. I love snowmen (they're about the only things I collect other than fabric) so I'll definitely have to make one...or two. I love that he's made from scraps, too, because I am indeed "you" - I hate to throw away any fabric or batting that might have future value.
Thanks for sharing Fluffy.

Oh good, I can get an early start on Christmas... I always say I will and then I don't. With your help I am bound to come up with a bunch done ahead of time.
