In keeping with the snowman theme of Christmas 2012 (see Liddy the Snowman here), I was inspired by Then She Madehttp://www.thenshemade.com/ and created some sock snowmen of my own.
I call them Huey, Dewey and Louie - after the ducks from the Disney cartoons.
I followed the directions from Then She Made but did make one minor change. I used felt for the eyes and nose since I didn't want anything hard or sharp in case Willow grabbed one off the table.
A few things to note.
- I used up almost a 5 lb bag of rice making 3 snowmen. I don't know if D's socks are gargantuan or what. So if you are planning on making a lot of these, make sure to get a BIG bag of rice.
- Your rubber bands should not be the super thin ones. Those will break. Get ones that are medium weight.
- I didn't wash the striped socks that I used for my sweaters and caps (I got a pack of 10 at Costco for $8.00) and I am thinking that is why they are curling where they got cut. So I would suggest washing the socks first.
- I needed to use a bit of fabric glue to hold the hats on their little heads.
Here's hoping you have a snowman filled holiday season!
