Nobody minds the snow when you have Bonnie’s Snow Buddies hanging around! I enjoyed stitching the Santa Buddies ornament and Ginger Buddies ornament so much, I had to try stitching a head version of Snow Buddies.
I chose Snow Buddies number six
and, just like with the ornament projects mentioned above, this design was edited with Embrilliance to eliminate all but the face and hat.
Placement stitches for the white GlitterFlex face stopped on either side of the smile with a jump stitch to connect after the design was modified in Embrillance.
Once again, I stitched the smile before fusing the GlitterFlex face. That way, I could see where to trim the bottom edge of the white GlitterFlex.
GlitterFlex was placed, trimmed, and fused for the Snow Buddies’ hat and face. Just know that since I stitched this project on wool felt rather than quilting cotton, it took a bit longer to fuse than normal.
The Santa Buddies ornament featured a beard for the lower edge of the design while the Ginger Buddies ornament featured satin stitching around the entire face for a perfect border. In retrospect, if I was to create this project again, I would allow a bit of GlitterFlex below the smile stitches to form a “chin.”
After embroidery, this little guy is just so cute! I trimmed the felt to size for a small wire hanger. Attached with two mini clothespins, the hanger was perfect for a snowflake stocking hook.
I purposely left the felt a bit long because I may add some text to the project. Stay tuned.
