These are so cute and easy to make. When my kids were younger I would string them together and make a garland of them to hang across our mantel. You can also put each childs name on the hat.

How To Make snow babies

  • 1
    stuff the glove with polyfil, tie off arms, legs, and neck(gather together at where the thumb and little finger would come together)this is where you tie for the neck. grab another small amount of polyfil and stuff it for the head, tie off and fold the top of the glove down to form the hat. Now you can paint or stitch a face on, paint or sew on buttons, or pompoms. I made some with tiny pompoms for the buttons and on the feet and hat, whatever way you decide to embellish it will be great ! have fun !

    (you pull the thumb inside out into the glove, and it stays inside of the head part when you stuff it)
