When I was digging through my fabrics I found this pretty green and blue snowflake fabric. It's not a traditional Christmas fabric, but I knew my snowmen would sparkle on it.
I decided to put snowmen on my quilt using the Accuquilt 2", 3" and 5" circle dies as well as the Holiday Accessory die.
I then applied fusible to the back of some cream fabric as well as scraps I picked out for the accessories. Finding just the right fabric for the carrot nose was fun.
I have a great love for rick rack. It's such fun to use and provides a pop of additional color and texture. I decided to carefully sew a piece into the stocking seam to add a little extra zip. I'm glad I took the time because I love how it turned out!
To secure my snowmen I stitched about 1/16 inch away from the edges using a navy blue Aurifil thread. I chose navy instead of black because I thought it was be a less stark contrast with the background fabric. I also added eyes and mouth with a Pigma pen.
I also added a small loop of rick rack to the top of the seam to use as a hanger for the stocking.
All done! Now to decide who to give it to so I can add a name.
I hope you get to quilt today!
