Flurries of Jolly Sock Snowmen Families



These Where My Favorite
Today I am sharing a series of Snow Families I made for the craft fair.  They sold very well (Set of 3 for $12.).  I should have remembered to keep a cute set for myself-- Oh well.

 Supply list and details below photos:

Sorry for the bad photo on this one








* Supplies:

  • White Sock- White in both child and adult male size for bodies
  • Colored Socks and footies- coordinating patterned socks and footsie (in both adult male and female sizes and colors) for clothing and hats 
  • Nylon knee-highs – I used these and liners so rice wouldn’t poke thru the socks.  I put the rice in the base and topped with stuffing for the head tied it off; cut off excess and put the fill knee high in to the white sock.    Note:  glue seemed to work better for getting the hats inn the “just right position”.
  • Rice – to weight the base of the snowfolks
  • Stuffing- for the head and some of the upper body
  • Rubber bands – to “squeeze-in” section (head, body, etc.)
  • Hot glue and glue gun - while I sewed on most of the features some needed stability of glue, or in some cases, glue worked better or I was tiered and glue was easier.   
  • Buttons, beads, decorative straight pins, gems, and embroidery floss – for eyes, nose, and mouths
  • Ribbons, bows, small flowers – to accessorize, of course ;)
  • Needle and thread – to attach eyes, bows, secure hats and scarves, etc..  Note:  A curved needle worked better for me to sew on the eyes, etc.…
  • Knit hat and scarf - I bought one small set from the craft store all the rest where just cut piece of socks.  
  • Yarn - scarves and tie-offs

Place I am sharing these on:




 
The Faceless  Masses


*  When I go to make my  supply list, it always surprises me on how many supplies I actually use – it makes it seem more difficult than it is.  This was a lot more involved than my gnomes.  The gnomes where so easy to make (in an up coming post IF I can find any pictures of them).


Hope you enjoyed these little cuties.  Gob bless and happy scrappin'
