How to sew a snowman from fleece: instructions
Everyone knows that they make a snowman, rolling snow balls, and put them on top of each other. Our snowman will consist of 2 balls.
- Draw on cardboard 2 circles of different diameter. This is a blank snowball. Now we impose patterns on the white fabric, folded in half, and carefully cut out. We got 2 white double circles. Do not forget to leave some fabric on the seams!
- Now you need to map the wedges on each ball.
- The next step - stitch on a sewing machine or sew every detail with your hands, but only on one side.
- We make two main parts of the toy - 2 "snow globe". To do this, add 2 parts and stitch. It is important that they fit together. Do not confuse the details! Stuff with cotton and get the ball.
- Do the same with the other ball. Sew the balls together in the desired sequence. There is a blank for a snowman. This is its main part!
- Now we sew a nose. Usually a snowman's nose is a carrot. So we, to imitate a real snowman, will make our toy snowman's nose made of orange fabric. We fold the fabric for the nose in half as a triangle. Cut out. We scribble. Stuffed with cotton. The snowman's nose is ready! Or we will sew a red bead.
- It remains to sew the nose neatly to the head of a snowman. Carry out all seams very carefully, to be stronger, and unnoticed. It is better to sew on the face with hidden stitches.
- Now we sew our eyes. These can be ordinary black beads or complex eyes consisting of colored buttons with a black bead (eye) in the middle. You can attach a black bead to a button with glue. If you can make eyes out of cardboard - please! Do not forget to paint them beautifully and glue to the head of a snowman.
- We sew loose limbs. The next step will be the manufacture of arms and legs for our toy (although you can do without it). For this you need a white cloth. We fold it in half. Cut out with a margin on the seams. Stitching and wadding. Gently fasten the arms and legs on the body of a snowman.
- Snowman is ready! Almost ... after all, your child will surely feel that something is missing from a toy. What? - you ask. And the child, of course, will answer: clothes! We sew a snowman clothes. A hat is needed on the head so as not to catch a cold.

- You can simply put a hat on a snowman on your head, or you can sew it in order not to get lost.
- In winter, you can not do without a warm scarf. Snowman, he will be just the way.Making a scarf.Very easy to make a scarf stripes fleece. It can also be decorated with a fringe, like a hat, or sew fun multicolored beads.
- It is better to sew a hat and a scarf from fleece of the same color (yellow, red, green, etc.) in order to get a set. So the snowman looks more solid.
