Snowman T-shirt tutorial

Tis the Season! Here’s a fun way to spice up a plain white tee for the winter season!

I made these snowman tee’s for my kids years ago. They are quick, simple and adorable!

White t-shirt
scrap of orange fabric (for carrot nose)
Fabric Adhesive
8 black buttons (mine were mismatched)
thread and hand sewing needle
Step 1: Cut out a carrot pattern to trace. (A carrot is really just a tall, skinny triangle with a rounded bottom).

Step 2: Place your orange fabric right side down and apply the fabric adhesive per the package instructions. Trace your carrot pattern and then cut out.

Step 3: Place the carrot on the tshirt and arrange the buttons for the eyes and mouth. Remove the backing on the carrot and iron into place. 

Step 4: Sew the carrot securely into place with a zig zag, statin or straight stitch. Then using your hand needle sew on the buttons for the eyes and mouth and you are done!
These can easily be made into a girl snowman by adding a hair bow or even eyelashes.

If you try them out – let me know!
I will be linking up here all week!
