Snowman Wrapped Chocolate Bars (REVISED)
To begin these are the materials you will need.
cotton holiday fabric (or plain color is fine)
Sewing machine (optional) you can always hand stitch or hot glue if you want
First, you need to go to the following link and print out your snowman on regular paper. Make sure it is landscape, and take off the internet header too!
This was originally found here. She has several others on her blog as well.
We had the Snowman Printable printed for us, so when we first did the tutorial, we did measurements to the ones we had printed out. Thank you Mari for letting us know that the printable here was not exactly the same. So I have to change the measurements below. I hope this helps everyone!
Next, Cut off 1.25 inches from the right side and 2.75 inches from the left side of the snowman. Then use your ruler to mark off the following measurements: 1 inch from bottom, 1.5 inches from top, 2.25 inches from each side, left and right. Then fold on each of those lines like this.
Ta-Da! He's naked...gotta clothe this guy before he catches a cold!
Cut a piece of the felt (4x5) inches - make sure it stretches in the 5 direction
fold 4 inch sides together and sew that edge so you have a tube
slip on hat, tie with a scrap (make sure it stretches), and pull it taught to make the ends curl up.
