Eddy, the canvas Snowman

I wanted to make something like a snow globe but different so when I found this huge jar  – I think that they get them in restaurants – I decided to make my own holiday version using Canvas Corps products. Please meet Eddie, the canvas snowman – says Mona Leonard about her holiday project.

Materials used to make Eddie:
Canvas Corp canvas scraps

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Orange, Guilded Gold, Walnut Gold
Wooden tag
Sewing machine
Scissors, Glue
Stuffing for snow man
Pattern material remnants
Thread, Needle, Buttons
Stickers – Tim Holtz
Fake snow spray

I started with a piece of canvas it wasn’t quite long enough so sewed another strip of canvas at the bottom using all my remnants to make my piece longer. I folded my piece in half and proceded to draw a line where I wanted it cut.

Once the line was traced I sewed about 1/2″ from the line all the way around leavin bottom of snowman open.

Once it was all sewed i used my scissors to cut 1/2″ outside the sewn area. I then flipped it inside out.

I then started stuffing the snowman small prtion at a time and using elastics to make it look like snowballs. I made sure it was seperated pretty even then sewed the bottom of the snowman closed.

I then used my Tattered Angels Guilded Gold and Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist to make my snowman look a little more rustic.

For the nose I used another little piece of canvas corp canvas and sewed a carrot shape nose and stuck a pencil in it to make it open. I then took my Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist in orange and sprayed my little carrot.

Then for the fun part decorating my snowman I made a long triangle using my red checkered fabric, folded it in half and sewed it close… when I put it on my snowman, I realised it was a bit too long so I had to fold the brim of the hat a few times.
I also cut a long strip of same material to make him a matching scarf.

I cut off the end of the pencil leaving the inside piece in the nose – that made it easier to glue in place.

Now, Eddy is looking for his eyes inside my button jar. When he found a great pair of matching black buttons, I glued them on for him. HE also found two matching buttons for his belly .

Here is where I sprayed the bottom of the jar using the fake snow. I glued Eddy to the bottom of the jar and added the lid and a tag using some twine to tie the tag around the lid.

Now Eddie, the canvas snowman has his own little home filled with snow.
It will make not only a cute holiday decoration but a fun present for one of your young Christmas guests.
