Stitch up some Snow Friends!!

It's snowing in Minnesota and it's the kind of snow that is perfect for making some snow friends! Well ... not outside  ... inside! Get out the wool and floss and stitch away on a snowy day.

Hexxies are so popular ... I've used them for my snow friend faces. If you have a die cut, use a hexxie die that is about an inch and a quarter or an inch and a half. Or cut them by hand. Mix up different pieces of orange wool if you want so each snow friend is unique.

I prefer to cut out my wool appliques using freezer paper. If you like to use fusible, make sure you reverse some of the noses. I didn't in the pattern. You want the noses to go in different directions.

The tiny stars in the eyes and the cross hatch marks for cheeks are some tricks I learned as a decorative painter. It was easy to transfer the idea to thread!
