I'm The Super Mom!!!

Apparently, my kids think I can DO...ANYTHING... Well, and, truth-be-told, I guess I can. Number 2 son, Adam, texted me at exactly 4:03 p.m.TONIGHT! And...he attached a pic and said "Can you make me this shirt by 6:00 p.m.?" 

Now, what was I going to say? No? Mom never says no! Madly, I scrambled...do I have something suitable? What? Felt? Yes! Fusible stuff? Yes! I can do it!

I had the picture to go by, so what's not to do? While Adam shopped for a sweatshirt, I grabbed felt in off-white (dirty snowman!), red, black, orange, and green. Fusible web. Stuffing (for the snowman balls - did I say balls?). A bit o' ribbon. Plates! 3 sizes! Plus a spice jar lid, and a lemon juice lid...basically I just ran around the house like a mad woman, grabbing things to trace and fuse.

I fused and cut the head and two body pieces, mouth, eyes, hat. Conjured up a nose. Forget about the hands and feet! This snowman doesn't have hands and feet! Sorry!

All in all, I think it came together well. Although when he finally showed up with the sweatshirt, he wanted black tummy buttons...no problem, I cut-and-fused some quick-as-a-wink! He made me promise not to post the end result on Facebook until HE had posted some...but he didn't say anything about my blog ;-)
