Snowman Family (in Evolon)
These little snowmen have been made from rectangular pieces of Evolon (20cms wide), which have been curled up into cylindrical shapes and stapled in position. They range in height from 6cms, 9cms to 12cms and are very quick and easy to make.
Simply cut a small hole in the position of the nose (approximately 6mm in diameter) and, using a black biro, draw on some eyes and a friendly smile. Then colour a semicircle of Evolon (6cms in diameter) with acrylic paint, before rolling into a cone shape to form a carrot nose.
Push the nose through the hole until it fits snugly and stays in place and then decorate your snowman to give him (or her) their own personality!
To make the crown of each hat, we cut down three ball type plastic soap dispensers (the sort you put in your washing machine), and trimmed them with a circle of Evolon for the brims (or peak for the cap) before colouring with acrylic paint.
We found Evolon was an ideal choice for this project as it is pliable, yet stiff enough to support itself and, like all our fabrics, it does not fray. Maybe something for the children to make in the Christmas holidays?
