tilda snowmen christmas decorations

Dear readers,

some time ago I bought a book showing me how to make the most beautiful Xmas decorations.  It was written by a Norwegian girl called Tone Finnanger.  Unfortunately the text was also in Norwegian... But the designs are clearly explained with step by step 'how to's and besides, I'm quite used to reading patterns.

don't you just love this ?

So this weekend I tried to make the snowmen on page 22.

It wasn't very hard work : the patterns are small, but correct.  I enjoyed making the little pijama's.  To colour the faces, I used some of my  blush, and a special textile felt tip pen in dark brown for the eyes.  I haven't made the noses yet : still trying to figure out how I can make a small carrot nose...
this is the result :
