Second Snowman Table Topper Finished

Our second snowman table topper is now complete.  Vicki at Vicki’s Crafts and Quilting shared this cute and adorable table topper during a Christmas in July blog hop.  She shared a tutorial on how to make this table topper as well, and we both just knew that we wanted to drop everything darn thing and make it.  We did and now we’ve made a second one!

Originally, I showed the photo to Sue and said how of these do you think we need to make?  She said a dozen.  WHAT??!!??  I was thinking six but then she started naming some people who would definitely like it.

Snowman For A Friend

After making the first topper, our friend, Laura, asked us to make her one.  Hmm.  Did we have enough of the materials to make one exactly the same?  Yes, we did, so Sue cut a 9″ strip of fabric and I started trimming the equilateral triangles.

I lined up the cut straight-edge of the fabric with the 60° marking on the ruler and cut carefully.  That looked right so I cut five more equilateral triangles.

Snowman Moving Forward

We used the same template for the snowflakes as last time.  Appliqué began with a snowman and snowflake in alternate triangles and finished quickly!

We quickly layered it up with some red backing that reminds me of peppermint and candy canes.  But wait!  I forgot the noses . . . phew, good thing I noticed that before it was too late.

Quilting of a simple stipple was done in the center and around/into each snowflake with my FMQ foot.  Then, I switched to a walking foot to outline each snowman’s head and to stitch-in-the-ditch on each side of the red/white border.  Finally, I added two straight-line rows of stitching in the dotted border to mimic the width of the inner border. 


Handing tacking of the binding down during my lunch hour and sew down the button eyes, and topper #2 was complete.  We washed and dried it – ta-da! We hope Laura will love it and give it a good home.
