|These Where My Favorite|
Today I am sharing a series of Snow Families I made for the craft fair. They sold very well (Set of 3 for $12.). I should have remembered to keep a cute set for myself-- Oh well.
|Sorry for the bad photo on this one|
- White Sock- White in both child and adult male size for bodies
- Colored Socks and footies- coordinating patterned socks and footsie (in both adult male and female sizes and colors) for clothing and hats
- Nylon knee-highs – I used these and liners so rice wouldn’t poke thru the socks. I put the rice in the base and topped with stuffing for the head tied it off; cut off excess and put the fill knee high in to the white sock. Note: glue seemed to work better for getting the hats inn the “just right position”.
- Rice – to weight the base of the snowfolks
- Stuffing- for the head and some of the upper body
- Rubber bands – to “squeeze-in” section (head, body, etc.)
- Hot glue and glue gun - while I sewed on most of the features some needed stability of glue, or in some cases, glue worked better or I was tiered and glue was easier.
- Buttons, beads, decorative straight pins, gems, and embroidery floss – for eyes, nose, and mouths
- Ribbons, bows, small flowers – to accessorize, of course ;)
- Needle and thread – to attach eyes, bows, secure hats and scarves, etc.. Note: A curved needle worked better for me to sew on the eyes, etc.…
- Knit hat and scarf - I bought one small set from the craft store all the rest where just cut piece of socks.
- Yarn - scarves and tie-offs

* When I go to make my supply list, it always surprises me on how many supplies I actually use – it makes it seem more difficult than it is. This was a lot more involved than my gnomes. The gnomes where so easy to make (in an up coming post IF I can find any pictures of them).
Hope you enjoyed these little cuties. Gob bless and happy scrappin'
