Christmas Caroling Row Along - Frosty the Snowman!

Welcome to Day One of the 3rd Annual Row Along hosted by Seams to Be Sew.  This 6-week event will feature 42 bloggers bringing their interpretation of their and your favorite Christmas Carols in a cute 30" x 10" rows (horizontal and vertical) and patterns for you to download. The row along starts today, September 5th and ends October 10th, 2017, with lots of giveaways every day so make sure you check back to see what the new giveaway is.

This is my first year to do this Row Along, it has been so much fun to come up with a design that matched the Christmas Carol.  The carol I chose for this Row Along was Frosty the Snowman.  I loved the song and shows growing up and still do watch them every year. 



The shows took the song a little further into more adventures, so it was hard to choose what I wanted to design to bring the actual part of Frosty out.  So I finally decided on a design that shows the sparks that Frosty had when he met his love of his life Crystal.  

"Frosty's True Love," the pattern shows the reaction both characters had when they spotted each other for the first time.  Crystal is demonstrating that cuteness and shyness, and frosty has that smile of the shock of seeing that one and only girl for the first time.  The pattern measures 30" x 10".

The fabric used in my row comes from Northcott's Fabrics New Holiday Collection Fabrics.  The Fabrics used in this row are the following:

Background (Snow Flake Blue 21701-44) - The Magic of Christmas 


Snowman (White 9020-10) and Main Red (Red 9020-24) - Santa Claus is Coming to Town


Solid Red (9000-24) - Tis the Season


The gray and black fabrics came from scraps in my fabric collection.

Thank you to Northcott Fabrics for donating the fabric used in all the participating in the blog hop.

Adding characteristics to the row such as Frosty smile and Crystal mouth and eye lashes can be easy by sewing a few strands of Embroidery Floss to the finished row. If you didn't want to sew the embroidery floss, you could use a PigmaⓇ Micron Pen to add the elements.

I decided to make my row into a small table runner.  I have added the instructions for adding the optional borders in the pattern.

Now for the pattern, just click on the link below to get your free copy of "Frosty's True Love.  The pattern is free.




Please check out the other blogs going on today and through out the whole event, plus the giveaways at the bottom of this blog.

in some cases, you will be asked to pay for shipping your giveaways.

I am not rich and I do not ask sponsors for money, they provide prizes only.

If they shipped the prize to me, you will be asked to pay for shipping.
All giveaways will be shipped that are in my home within 48 hours of my having heard from you.

An invoice will be sent to you via Paypal, and shipping will take place via Paypal, so your Paypal email will be needed to send the invoice. You will receive a tracking number except for overseas shipments. All shipping will either be first class which averages out at 2.77 to 4.00 up to 13 ounces. Paypal fees are added to that amount to cover that fee. All fabric bundles from Michael Miller, Hoffman, and Moda will be shipped via Priority Mail to protect the fabric itself.

Please note, every effort is made to protect the prizes. They go into a plastic bin when I receive them, and it is covered by an air tight cover. I have a dog in my home and I have a smoker in my home, so I do everything possible to protect the prizes.

Most companies are very good about getting prizes off to customers quickly also, but some companies are overseas, so please allow all sponsors a 2-week time period before you report to me that you still haven't received your prize. When the company is overseas, it can take 6 weeks to 90 days for an item to also arrive.

Whether or not you read the above, the rules for giveaways are in place to protect everyone. I do not want to hear you didn't read them, they will be posted on my blog daily during each featured day. There is no excuse for not reading them.
