One down and Only 12 Left to Go!!

I got my first little Snowman for my Snowman swap completed this afternoon.  When I was looking online for star buttons, I found a polymer clay site and thought it sounded like fun if I made the button from scratch!!  It was fun and hopefully I will get better with time!!  Here he is ~


And, I had a heck of a time finding small enough pieces of coal for the mouth and eyes!!  I think his name is Oscar!!  Ok, back to work!!

P.S.  It's not a good idea to iron over felt - it is REALLY hard on the felt and on your iron!!

Thank you for visiting my blog. Nedra is a dear friend--to many! I love all the cute snowmen, especially the melted one!
I am also into the hexie thing. I'm making a Grandmothers Flower Garden for the wall above my stairs. It is a work in progress.
Glad I found your blog--I'll be back often.

I iron felt and wool and anything else that doesn't melt, lol. Great idea to make your own buttons, I am always looking for the perfect ones in the right sizes.
