Quiet Book Week 2- Build a Snowman Tutorial

This week, I am going to show you to make the snowman page.
You will need:
1 full color sheet of felt. Try to pick something that is not white, black, tan or orange.
1 full sheet of white felt
scraps of black, orange and tan felt

Cut a free hand piece of white felt. Make sure the felt goes across the whole page and comes up tall on at least one side. Sew the felt on, on three of the sides, leaving the top open. Cut the shapes out. You can use your own shapes, or download my pattern from here. The pattern is nothing fancy, but it may give you some idea. You will need, three different shaped white circles, two stick arms, one carrot nose, one top hat and a bunch of small black buttons.

I also cut some small pieces of white and hand stitched them onto the background to give more on an appearance of snowing.

The little kids in my Sunday school class, could not get enough of this page today. When they are all done playing, just scoop the pieces up and hide them behind the snowman. Easy!

That is great! And I love the 'storage' of the pieces that make up the snowman! Cute idea. :-)
