Free Friday: Cheery Snowman Stitch-along #3

Happy Friday, everyone!  Isn't Friday a wonderful day?  It's the end of the week, you can relax knowing the weekend is coming (assuming you don't work weekends that is), life takes on a more chill feeling.   At least that's how it is for me.  The weekend is when I get to really spend time with Chad, my beloved hubby.

Well, I guess I should stop rambling and get on with the stitch-along pattern!  In case you missed it, I announced three weeks ago that we would be doing a Christmasy plastic canvas stitch along!  It will be a pattern given out in four parts, one a week for four weeks.  All of the required materials for the entire project are posted on that announcement page I linked to, so if you want to join us, click on that to see what you'll need to finish the entire project.  If you can't get started right away, I'll post the pattern in its entirety at the end of the stitch-along so that you can do it at your leisure!

Week #1: Snowman Body
Week #2:  Hat and Carrot

Cheery Snowman Wall Hanging Week #3


Skill Level:

Beginner

Materials:

  • Scrap 7-count plastic canvas
  • Red Heart yarn in colors listed in key
  • Plastic canvas needle
  • Hot glue

Instructions:

  1. Cut and stitch plastic canvas according to graphs. *
  2. Overcast holly leaves with Paddy Green yarn.
  3. Overcast scarf with Paddy Green and Hunter Green yarns, matching yarn to nearby stitches.
  4. Trim fringe to 1 inch long.  To keep fringe from unraveling, put small dabs of hot glue on the back side of the knots. 
* If you need instructions on how to do a fringe stitch, Krafty Kat has a very nice tutorial.
