Cold Characters Wool Pillow...

Three Whimsical Snowmen 'out and about' on a snowy night.
These snowmen were so much fun to
applique and embellish.
Each one has their own personality.

I have hand pieced the snowmen and their hats, gloves and scarves 
onto a charcoal wool background.
Each one has hand embroidered accents.
I added several Spider Web Stitches to resemble snowflakes in the night sky,
each one embellished with glass beads to give them a hint of icy sparkle. 
The pillow edge is trimmed using a Glass Beaded Blanket Stitch.

These Wool Pillows measure 14in. x 18in. (35.56cm x 45.72cm)


  1. This is so beautiful! You're so very creative and talented.

  2. That is very nice! And I see the different personalities. We are a family of three. This would also make a great doormat for the winter.
