Snowmen from Gloves - Family Frame

Yes! I's been almost a year since I posted. I was busy trying several other ventures which just made me too busy to concentrate on the things I love most. Lesson learned and now I'm back.

I was all set with projects to do this new year but unfortunately I injured my right thumb from (get this) playing the Wii. Apparently I was pushing down too hard for a long period over the course of several days that I strained my thumb, wrist, and forearm muscles. Darn that Kirby Epic Yarn Game. It was so much fun but now I'm paying the price. I never realized how much easier life was with my thumb. I can't wait until I get better.

Since I can't post new projects I planned on, I will present to you daily projects I did last year, which I haven't posted. First up is my Snowmen Family made from knitted gloves.

This is one that I made for my family.

And here's the close-up. My oldest said they look more like penguins than snowmen.
Hey! It was my first attempt. I still like it.

My second attempt.
This one was actually an order that I received during a craft show. This is the original piece before my customer decided to change the mom snowman's hair bow to a different color.
She went with purple and was pleased. I meant to take a picture
before giving it to her but I forgot. Sorry.

Here's one I did for my brother's family. My third attempt and looking better.
Now they do look like snowmen.

And the close-up.

This is the last set I made for a good family friend. This the close-up of their snowmen family.

This idea is not original. I don't think I'm that creative as of yet. Anyhoo...this fantastic idea came from a super creative lady named Sheri. Click HERE to go to her site with the tutorial.

Hope you enjoyed it.

Wow! They turned out fabulous! You were even brave enough to add mouths! It's too small of work for me. Well done!
