Hello! Today is the first day of the Shades of Blue Blog Hop hosted by Carla at Creatin' in the Sticks. Thank you, Carla, for putting this fabulous hop together. Carla wanted us to create something with a little blue in it. Who could resist such a fun challenge?
One of my resolutions for this year is to use up my fabric stash and complete unfinished UFO's. Several years ago I followed Lori Holt's Instagram tutorial on how to make darling tiny snowmen. I made a bunch, but they were so small, only about 6" x 6", that I decided not to make an entire quilt out of them. Long story short, they got put away. When I was rummaging through my stash looking for blue fabric scraps, I happened upon them again. Their background was blue ... hmmm.
Ta Da!! A lightbulb exploded in my brain.
Why not make something with these adorable little guys for the blog hop? I thought of all the items I could create using some cute snowmen, and finally decided on a pillow.
I sewed the 4 snowmen together, then added a 2" border.
Snowmen aren't just for Christmas. January is one of our coldest months and, although it doesn't snow here, I think these little guys are brrr-rific!
I'm so glad you stopped by to see what has been chillin' in my sewing room. But don't stop now! There's plenty more to see at these sites:
