Snowman Ornaments Made from Scrap Batting

How to Make Snowman Ornaments from Scrap Batting | JacquelynneSteves.com

Last week, we talked about how to piece together smaller pieces of batting into a large piece for your quilting projects. Sometimes, you will still have little scraps that you don’t want to throw away- here are some snowman ornaments made from scrap batting! These are fun for the kids to make as well. Just get out all of your bits of ribbon, buttons, beads, etc and have fun!

Here’s what you do:

Trace the snowman and hat patterns (click here for pattern PDF) onto the dull side of the fusible interfacing. Cut out the interfacing, leaving a little bit of a border around the pattern shape.

Place the interfacing with the snowman design shiny side down on a scrap of batting. Fuse in place according to the package instructions.

Place the interfacing with the hat design shiny side down on the WRONG side of a scrap of fabric. Fuse in place according to the package instructions.
