If the powdery stuff is too cold, try stitching this one instead!
This design is called We Can Build a Snowman. It comes as a .PDF pattern and features a snowman, mittens, and lots of fluffy snowflakes. The text reads "We can build a snowman."
The design is stitched in shades of red, black, white, orange, and brown.
The model was stitched on 14ct. Vintage Country Mocha Aida using 2 ply thread.
The stitch count is 111w x 53h and the finished design measures approximately 7 5/8"w x 3 7/8"h when stitched on that fabric. The pattern calls for whole stitches only. The model was stitched with threads from DMC and Weeks Dye Works. DMC equivalents are provided for the specialty fibers. The pattern includes both a black/white symbol page as well as a color page, so you can choose to stitch from the format that works best for you.
WHERE TO BUY Since this is a .PDF pattern, it can be found in the Etsy Shop or at the shops on the authorized .PDF resellers listed in the "WHERE TO BUY" link who carry it.
RECREATE THE LOOK:
Finish Fabric: The red/black checked fabric is from the Branded line by Sweetwater for Moda. It is out of print.
Cording: I used pre-made white cording (3/16") from Hobby Lobby. The brand is Merchant 41 and the SKU is 829341.
Bow: The black ribbon is from 5th Street Studio on Etsy. It is a 1.5" wire-edge royal burlap ribbon and the item number is RG127802. I sealed the ends with fray-check. (Affiliate Amazon link.) The snowflake button came out of my stash, so no SKU--sorry!
The materials listed above are unique to this piece. The foundational supplies (the board, glue, batting, etc--stuff you can't see) are the same no matter what I am finishing. I use backing board, Aleens Tacky Glue, and Warm and White Craft Batting. I make cuts with a rotary cutter on a rotary cutting mat. You can see them along with links on the Tools/Organization page.
One more time, here it is. Hope you enjoy!
