Just finished these 2 Vintage Chenille Snow People this week!
I used some pieces of an old vintage Chenille bedspread I had to make these. I sewed on vintage buttons for eyes, nose and buttons on the front. I sewed on some white fuzzy "dingle balls" trim, too.
For the tags I used cutouts from an old children's book and I glittered the edges with fine fairy dust.
Price is $9.95 each plus shipping.
I am still making things along for my craft show Dec. 8th, Cecil Floyd School in Joplin, MO.
Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!
