Making a snowman and a felt Christmas pudding

Hello! I hope that everyone is having a lovely weekend. There are lots of lovely snowy pics here in blogland it's been great to look at them all. We were very excited yesterday when it started snowing heavily here is London, so on our way to the shops we walked through the park to make the most of it!

I wasn't bargaining on being covered in snow after the first 10 mins due to snowballs being thrown at me by my lovely other half (I did get him back a bit hehe), but after that was all finished with we decided to make a snowman. His face is made entirely out of money! (That was all we had to hand at the time and a few of them were pound coins so we had to take them off before we left him with only his 2p eyes and nose)

Rolling the body is not a quick operation we noticed, it took ages!!

I love the way everything looks as if it is dusted in icing sugar...

Here is another little felt tree decoration that I made last night, think I am slightly addicted to making these things, I would highly recommend this to all as a therapeautic Christmassy exercise! Great for using up smaller pieces of felt and spare buttons, I have hand sewn it together using running stitch along the bottom of the icing, and blanket stitch around the edging. Also lots of stuffing in it to make it a nice round Christmas pudding.

Hope you are all keeping warm and safe in the snow.



  1. I love this and I am going to start making felt ornaments and such in the New Year. Yours are just wonderful! Have a wonderful day!
