A large foam pillow
A large white pillow case
Five 2" black buttons
Five 1 1/2" black buttons
Orange felt (8" x 10")
Put the pillow case on the pillow.
Stand the pillow on end, open side
of the pillow case at the top.
Tie the scarf around the pillow about 1/3
of the way from the top.
The portion of the pillow above the scarf
is the head.
Sew 2" black buttons for eyes, and make a smile
by sewing on five 1 1/2" black buttons in a U shape.
To make the nose, cut a large triangle out of the felt.
Make it as large as the felt piece allows.
Fold the triangle in half and sew closed along the
length of the triangle. Stuff with a little paper.
Stitch the open ends to the snowman.
Sew the three remaining buttons on
below the scarft (as the snowman's buttons).
Stuff the hat with a little crumpled paper &
place it on the snowman's head, tucking in
the loose ends of the pillow case.
