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.
