Picture of Materials:

                                     29" by 38" light blue 100% cotton with a little design.
For appliques use spare scraps of cotton fabric in orange, blue, black, brown,
                                                                                            white, green colors.
                                      Cotton batting
                                       Heat n bond   iron on adhesive 
                                       Matching sewing thread

Draw each motif onto a tracing paper. I recommend to go over it with marker to make your lines bold. 
Cut the shapes out. Them trace nose, eye, mouth, arms, pine tree and trunk tree backwards on the paper side of your Heat'n'Bond .Place your HnB paper side up on top of your fabric (wrong side up). Iron the two pieces together. Now ironed  and cut out the shape with a sharp scissor .
About snowman hat, scarf  and snow to be use on tree, cut it out in cotton fabric, and kipping the same shape cut it in cotton batting as shown in the picture. This technique will give a nice and soft padding effect after sewing.

Step 3: Blanket in process !

Place and pin a Ric Rac  from one side to the other side of the front pane. Make two  curves lines pretending they are hills. Approximately one of them 9" from the bottom and the other one 12" from the top. Do not forget that it has to be a gentle curve line.
Using a matching thread  sew with straight stitch, after that press very well the top of the fabric, it is an essential process for any sewing project.

Hi Penolopy,
How are you? I am very happy that you like the snowman blanket, and I am sorry that I did not mention about which foot I have used.It is a zig zag foot also the same one that I use to sew straight stitch. I hope that it is help you, if you have other question just let me know.
Thank you ....
That is really cute! What foot did you use when you zigzag stitched the snowman on?
