Some of My Favorite Snowfolk

Several years ago I spent some time creating snowmen from recycled chenille bedspreads and thriftstore sweaters, socks, etc. These are some of my favorites. They were all my original designs, made on the fly without benefit of patterns. Most have baked clay noses. I never knew exactly what I was going to make. I'd just cut a shape for the body and start dressing it. They always seemed to exert their own personalities and tell me how they wanted to look. I sold most of these at craft shows. I only have one or two left for myself and really wish I had more. Maybe I need to think about making some again.

Anyway..these are some of the bigger ones. Hope you like them.
