"Frosty the snowman"-pillow

Added Oct 27, 2010

Berlin, Germany






this is a pillow i made again for christmas. it is quite simple to be done; you need to do a plain cushion first (this is a 50 × 50 cm big cushion in dark green velvet) and create a picture you like on the front. in this case i made the face of a happy snowman in apliqué technique. i used white cotton for the face, an orange scrap of linen for the nose, dark grey wool scraps for a hat and a little christmasprint scrap for a bow. additionally to this, a few trimmings and embroidery-thread plus a layer of soft fibre to give the picutre a bit more “depth”.

the last decoration part are the little wool-balls in red and green i used for the corners of the pillow and one, for the bow decor. et voilâ! here is frosty and says hello!

Material Notes

dark green velvet, mother of pearl buttons, white cotton, orange linen, grey wool, christmasprint on cotton, embroidery thread, trimmings, wool balls, fibrefill




Garment Type
