Sock Snowman

After we did our Sock Snowman workshop at Two Scrapbook Friends, I just couldn't resist making some for myself. The add-on sketch at Sketch Support is this adorable snowman so I figured my sock snowmen would be perfect.

Here is the sketch:

I created 3 snowmen......a set. I was just having so much fun, I couldn't stop.

I played around with their hats a bit. I wanted to create more of a toque look (kinda like my kids used to wear when they were younger). I tied a piece of twine close to the top and then I cut slits into the toe of the sock. It naturally curled and did exactly what I wanted it to do.

I used different buttons to embellish their hats.

I added some tiny buttons to the ends of the twine on this one (sorry the photo is a bit blurry.....the lighting was not that great).

I used some big brads for the eyes. My glue gun got a work out when I made these.

Be sure to visit Sketch Support and see all the great snowman projects. Now that we have some snow, you can put them to good use.
