Shake It Snowman From Beginning To End

 I just finished a new e-pattern! Everyone seems to really like the beginning to end photos, so here we go.

I did something a little different this time. I did the smowman in a circular pattern leaving enough space to punch in another color between the rows.

I did the same thing with the sky.

Now onto the next guy.

Here are the finished 2, pulled off my gripper frame, I cut them out leaving about an inch all the way around.
 I used a piece of cardboard as the backing, then stitched the corners to keep it in place.
Now time to add the wool backing, I ordered my beautiful hand dyed wool at RubyMountainDyeWorks on Etsy , her colors are beautiful.
 I started stitching it around the sides.
 Here's what the edges look like stitched up.
Here's the back. I used  DMC  floss ball thread size 8, and branded 3 strands of it for the hangers, but you can use anything you want.
Here they are all finished up. You can purchase them in any of my 3 shops below:

I hope you enjoyed the pictures, I hope you all have a great week. Until next time.
