Seasons Greetings Everyone!
This year I have finally got around to making a rather dashing Snowman for my festive table decorations!
He has been on my ‘to make’ list for years, but I usually so get bogged down by other tasks associated with the ‘Merry Season’ that I soon forget to make these silly things that appeal to me so.
The idea for this little chap was found amongst the pages of a 1951 magazine, and it was love at first sight!
Known simply as Mr Snowman to passers by on the street, but ‘Frank’ to his loved ones (well, just me!), and LAC ‘Frosty V’ Snowman to all his RAF Chums!
Like every well dressed snowman, he owns a dashing fedora, woolly ‘comforts’ scarf (probably knitted from the ‘Knitting for the RAF’ booklet!) and a side cap for when he’s at ‘work’!
I particularly like his little cap and matching scarf...
He was super easy to make, though perhaps a little fiddly to do whilst perched on a bed... so if you decide to make your own Snowman (???), I suggest you have all the materials laid out in front of you on a clutter free table!
I'm afraid, the scanner has been put away, so I took some dodgy snaps of the instructions instead!
In the making and next to the tree of tat on completion!
I'm afraid I didn't make him as grumpy as the one pictured (didn't have the heart to!), and I didn’t make him a pipe because he says smoking is bad for his complexion!
I know I haven't given you much time to make him, but if you do feel you have a few hours spare for such a task, then I would love to see your results! You could even post the pics on my facebook page! :)
So, from the little man and me...
Happy Snowman making!
Tupps and Frosty V
