5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Pattern search on: December 05, 2010 12:27:10 PM
here are the instructions:
A 10 lb. flour bag is the foundation for the body.  A 5 pound bag for the headPlace a 1/4 inch dowel 15 inches long in the center of the larger bag and stuff  crumpled newspapers around it until the bag is filled.Fill the smalle bag with crumpled newspapers and turn it upside down over the top of the dowel, making sure the bag goes down over the top of the ten pound bag. Tie string tightly around the two bags where they meet, to make the neck.
Cut off a wire coat hanger, open the hanger , and stick it right through bag and newspapers (the larger bag) to form the arms. Turn back wire from each end toward the body, so that the arms are formed of double wire.Tie (folded) newspapersaround wire to give shape the arms.
Cover the bags and arms with a thin coating of Sobo glue ( a paint brush dipped in glue works very well) and put a layer of cotton batting over entire snowman.  a second layer is placed over the first -it will stick without any more glue-and more layers are added until snowman is built up to the size you want. Mine is 18 inches tall without his hat.
Cut eyes and mouth out of construction paper or felt and glue into place. Glue on a tiny red ball for the nose. a wide satin ribbon makes his scarf.  The snowman's hat is made of black construction paper or felt.  cut an oval shape, roughly 5 1/2 inches by 8 inches and strip 6 1/2 inchesby 12 inches.  Stapel the strip (stovepipe) together and glue it to the oval (the brim). Tie a red metallic -foil bell on one hand .  This snowman hgas a red wooden swedish bird perched beside his hat.

I found a pattern in an old book of mine and copied it to my computer .  but it says it uses batting and flour sacks not in cans.  Could you still use it?  if so pm me your email address and I'll email you the instructions.
