Sock Snowmen

You've surely heard of sock monkeys, but have you heard of sock snowmen???
Primitive ones of course. :)
About 5 years ago, I bought this snowman at Dollywood from a prim crafter that had a small store set up. I was going to make some.
 



Finally, I've gotten around to it!
I used a 2x4 scrap for the body (which was leftover from my house remodel), so that they would sit up on their own. 
The snowman that is finished, has had a bath with cinnamon, coffee, and vanilla and now he's got to dry.  I think I might thin out the 2x4's for the others.  Not liking that "block" look.
But aren't they cute?!?

Only five more days to get ready for the Mt. Mitchell Crafts Fair which is on August 6th & 7th here in Burnsville, NC.  If there's any way you can make it, you should come to it.  It is BIG!!!

Good Morning, Doreen.
Those are some cute snowmen...reminds me of a pattern I had found years ago...I think yours are even cuter...
