Stitch and Show.... Thanks rescuer for the challenge! Here is my answer - it is DollyGK's Frosty (from DBC) - only I left off the body fill stitch and did it them on white felt (instead of the original FSL). I did the names myself using Embird Basic and Hobo mini font from Jolsens. It was too late to ask Dolly when I decided this would be our Christmas Card this year. They will each be sent attached with an ornmament hook to the store-bought green sparkly tree card - ready to hang! Hope you like them.

these are darling and I love the idea of the felt. I seem to put a lot of FSL in the trash can too! Is there a link for these designs please? TY for sharing.

Hi I also got this design from Dolly. I am new to embroidery. How did you do it on felt instead of FSL? Thank you!

I left off the two white stops that do the background of the FSL. I sewed the rest as in the design.

Hoop a piece of felt (or use a stabilizer and put a piece of felt on the top that is about 4.5*4.5 so you have an edge). Sew all the stops except the black border at the end. Take the hoop off the machine and put another piece of felt on the back (I use temp adhesive to hold it - you could also pin outside of the sewing area). Then stitch the last stop with black in your top thread and in your bobbin thread. Then take out of the hoop and cut him out. He goes very quickly this way.

Thanks for sharing this. I will have to keep this in mind using felt. That was a great idea.
