Block 3 - Buy➡️HERE

Block 3 is made up of the appliqué portion and one strip at the top. Complete instructions for making Block 3 are found in the pattern. In this month's blog I'll share a few extra tips for making the block as well as a few close-up images.

  • As in Block 1 with the small snowman, I recommend lining this larger snowman if you are using a solid white or even a printed white. You may find you need to use 2-3 layers of light-weight interfacing to limit shadowing. If you need a refresher on instruction for lining light fabrics, refer to Let It Snow Block 1 blog. ➡️HERE
  • The fringe on the snowman's scarf and the pom-pom on the snowman's hat were embroidered with short straight stitches. Another option would be to attach some kind of trim for the scarf and a dimensional pom-pom for the hat. 
  • You may notice the pattern shows buttons on the snowman. When I was making my block, I chose to eliminate the buttons. The choice is yours whether to include them or not. 

  • I chose to leave the bear's scarf with no fringe or trim, but adding some would be cute. 
  • You may find the appliquéing the mouse to be a bit challenging, especially the ears as they are very small. Another option on the mouse ears would be to embroider them with a satin stitch in a matching or coordinating embroidery floss.

Have fun! Be creative! Make the blocks your own way! If you have any questions or comments, please be sure to message me ➡️HERE.
