Wow, It's Snowing in So. California...Anyone for a snowball fight? Making these for all of my family...28 so far...another couple of dozen to go..,thought the kiddles would especially like these...I digitized the snowballs taking inspiration from a tennis ball of all things...just two pieces of fleece to sew together...Christmas morning should be a riot!

I have an idea that these may be useful for hospitalized kids or for those suffering with traumas, especially if there are varied expressions to mimic their feelings. Even if thrown in anger, what's the harm?

Thanks, Judy...I have another Cutie who has used these for exactly that purpose...to help a young girl burned in a fire..they were a great uplifting treat for her and her family..and I was so happy I helped play a small part in her recovery...I hope you enjoy them, too!

After many months of recovering from surgery, finally I feel like stitching again. Living in Florida, we have no snow. However a bit of a cool snap has moved into our area with highs around 64 and lows 40's. Burrr, for us that's chilly. LOL
All during the last months I try to come to Cute every week or so and admire all the lovely projects y'all are making and give flowers to keep your gardens growing. When I saw these adorable snow kids, they were so perfect for Florida.
Thank you so much Kim for these lovely little treasures that bring me smiles that are much needed these days. You're an angel and I'm thankful you are watching over me. A part of you will always be with me with all your lovely designs past and present.
Love and huggers!
PS: I have a lot of catching up to do, so I hope y'all will be patient. :-)

great idea to use the shape of the parts of a tennisball, without checking, that's two pieces in the shape of a fat figure 8. I've used four parts to make a ball but I like your idea better.
the faces are funny, nice variations!

Love the facial expressions. Those eyelashes are adorable. Mustaches are big right now too. Would be cutd to have snowball done that way too. Can see one with a little top hat or toque on it. LOL I could so get into making these as they are just too cute!!!

It will be a blast at your house Christmas morning. I think I may do the same. I made some last year without faces and used my pumpkin design which made them not round, however more like a real snowball.

Your snowballs are so cute. Thank you for sharing. This just reminded me of my brother & sister in laws children. One year we had the family Christmas Eve get together early and when Christmas Eve came along their children didn't know what to do. They started to toss the coaster that I made them around. Would be great if they were snowballs.
Thank again for sharing. Happy snowball fun.

Cute faces, and nice to have personalized them. For those wanting to make their own, Gigi of Charming Station has 2 sizes (I've made the larger, ball sized, and have the smaller to do) and Reen of Embroidery Garden now has a set. They are a big hit, stay out all year round at my son's!
