Make a snowman appliqué

Snowman Applique hoop

I designed this snowman appliqué and hand stitched him with Aurifil 12wt light turquoise thread (2805). This thread creates a lovely texture.

Snowman with books

The design is based on illustrations from my Christmas books. I used fusible web and cotton fabric to create the appliqué. The embroidery hoop is 7 inches and he fits inside this nicely.

I used mainly white fabric to make the snowman, apart from turquoise for his eyes and buttons, but you could vary the colours — make the hat and scarf red or blue and use orange fabric for his nose.
