The Melted Snowmen created from no Patterns

Hey to all! I have been crafting away trying to get some new things done and a few weeks back I made up these melted snowmen.  I did not use any patterns just a thought on how they should look.  I began by just just out some quilting batting know as warm and natural.  I did draw on the fabric first I should that above all and I drew some wild shapes that looked like melted snowmen bodies to me.  I am thinking about having a tutorial on this project to share with you all, please leave me some comments on whether or not you would like to see this in tutorial form.  The I drew some round little heads to sew onto the melted bodies.  I did some soft sculpting for the facial features and used black beads for noses and eyeballs.  I also painted their little cheeks with some blush and black acrylic paint.  Their hats are from an old red sweater, I just cut up the sleeves a little and the neck scarfs are felt.  I also added some buttons and a little broom to the one snowman  using a bit of twig and some twine.  I also added some green satin ribbon to their hats for a final touch.  One snowman is smaller than the other, I think the fun part of doing these is you can make them bigger or even smaller or with other types of fabrics I think next time I will get some white felt instead and make them larger so that one can set a cup of hot chocolate on them along with a cookie maybe? I will have to think about that one.

Video on How I Created a snowman from Recycling a Coffee Creamer Container

I thought I would share one of my video's from You Tube on how I made this really cute snowman, I just can't seem to think ahead yet being winter is still here and I have the fever for snowmen lately, later I will show pictures of my melted snowmen that I created and my Butt snowmen.  I know sooner or later I will need to get busy and do something for Valentine's Day.
