Snowman Button Pillow

It may be cozy inside but baby it’s cold outside!  Create your own whimsical snowman without the chill!  This Snowman Button Pillow is a great addition to your Christmas decorations but he’s so cute that you should keep him out all winter long!

Snowman Button Pillow Final 2

Rosy Blush and Brush

Snowman Button Pillow Materials

Once you have your materials ready, follow these steps:

Step 1:  Measure and cut your felt fabric.  For this project we created a 14” by 14” size.  Don’t forget to include an additional 1” for the seam.  Sew the pillow.

Tip:  If your felt is lightweight you may opt to put a white interfacing or red interfacing behind it to give it some additional weight.

Step 2:  Using your black embroidery floss, create a blanket stitch around your pillow.  If you’re not sure how to do this stitch, there are some great tutorials on YouTube.

Step 3:  Determine placement of the buttons and use a pencil to mark the dots within the button holes. Sew the eyes and nose.  Before going further, add a rosy blush to the cheeks of your snowman and then continue sewing on the balance of the buttons.

Step 4:  Add a scarf around the base of the pillow.  You may need to add some stitches so it stays in place.  Add some pom pom earmuffs to finish him off!
