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:
What a great winter decoration!ReplyDelete
They are very cute guys, and that pillow is adorable.ReplyDelete
Charlene, this is the cutest pillow. I love that the pompoms are like little snowballs around the edge. So sweet! Thank you for the fun project inspiration and a great post to read.ReplyDelete
I "LOVE" it! I just ran across that tutorial that I had printed off myself recently. Not that I've made them yet, but now you have inspired me! Those pom-poms are perfect for these guys too!ReplyDelete
This pillow is so ADORABLE! I just love your little snowmen! Making something when them needs to be on my to-do list!ReplyDelete
Adorable snowmen, and the pom-poms finish the pillow off perfectly!ReplyDelete
They are so adorable. What a great find. Lovin the snowballs around the edges, just perfect. I'm also very impressed with the back of the pillow, what a great finish. I've never seen that done before but will definitely be giving it a try.ReplyDelete
I think you have a real win win here. It's still winter you can display it now and you cleaned out a UFO!! So cute!ReplyDelete
Sweet pillow! Love the snowmen!ReplyDelete
That pillow is just adorable. I love the pom poms!ReplyDelete
Snowmen are always welcome in the Winter. So cute!ReplyDelete
Such an adorable snowman pillow. I love the pompoms!ReplyDelete
Those snowmen are just darling. Are they paper pieced?ReplyDelete
These are not paper pieced. They are very easy to make from scraps of squares and rectangles. The pattern can be found in the book Vintage Christmas by Lori Holt. So glad you stopped by!Delete
What an adorable pillow! Thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete

Adorable cushion, and I love the pompom finish too! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
So sorry you don't get snow and therefore, don't make snowmen. Except, those you made using fabric. Great use of the blue.ReplyDelete
Love your snowman pillow!!! And the pompoms are a perfect trim for it!ReplyDelete
