Crochet Pattern: Whimsy Snowman Applique

By Emilee Gettle – 4 Comments
Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? As a kid snow on Christmas was a pretty high priority, but not so much that we couldn’t drive to my Grandma’s house for all the holiday festivities. Those years have long since passed and since a white Christmas isn’t in my forecast for this year I thought I’d whip up a little snowman applique to remind me of all those warm Christmas time memories. This frosty fellow would be perfect perched on your gift tags, for embellishing kid’s clothes or any other project that might need a bit of sprucing up for the holidays.

    Personally I don’t like white Christmas’s but I like the snowman!

  2. I’m not really a big fan of snowmen, but this applique might just change my mind. I’m pretty sure I know someone with a tree that needs decorating! :)
