Sock Snowmen or Snow Babies As I Like To Call Them


I have seen a lot of different versions of Sock Snowmen out there all over the internet recently and thought I would share mine. I have been making them for a few years now and I think everyone I know has one from me.
They are made using rice or Navy Beans and then the polyfil and with different types of socks depending on what size I am going for.
I have found plain socks hard to find lately. Most of them now have the grey on the toes and the stripe on the tops. I use women's crew socks or men's tube socks (when I can find them). Even kids socks can make cute little baby snowmen.
The eyes are flat back black buttons and the noses are 4 or 5mm little poms poms from Michael's. They are glued on with a hot glue gun along with the buttons.
I don't think I have made that many of them the same because of all the combinations of buttons and yarn there are.

I have recently started making them without noses.

These two are made entirely of beans. It makes them really heavy, but they won't fall over. I used fall colors for them. They really can be left out all season.

This one I made for my husband as he is a fan of the Razorbacks. The buttons are specialty buttons I found on Etsy.

This one was made with a sock on the outside to make the hat and a shirt. Again, so many combinations with different colors and patterns of socks.
