Snuggly Snowman


In honor of the holidays, here's a pattern for a cute little snowman. ^.^ The toy is about 6 1/2" tall. Buttons can be used if this is for decoration or for older children. For younger children, simply replace the buttons with embroidery and stitch the scarf securely to the doll. Enjoy!
