I made his mini snowman quilt for my partner kbrison in the mini 12 days of Christmas!  I pieced the top, appliqued the snowman and then  embroidered the detail in a sparkle metallic frost thread.  The mouth is also embroidered but hard to see. I used a small doily and bell on the hat. Painted the cheeks and added some buttons.  Such a fun project!

I love this, quaggy!  Such a beautiful job on all of the extras...you forgot to mention the ric-rac around the whole thing...such a nice touch!

Love the little doily and the snowflake buttons...just a very nice personalized gift...I bet it took hours to make, but it turned out great!

That is just darling!  So cute, and so well made!  Smiley  (I can see his mouth, if I tip my screen a bit.)  The ric-rac on the edge is a really nice touch.  Did you use something chiffon-y for the scarf?  It looks like it has a nice shimmer.

Thanks for all the nice comments!  The scarf was just cotton fat quarter...shades of purples!
