ornament monday ^__^
in case you follow my instagram you’ve already seen this:

Dec 8: someone you love ... Is not around today so a picture of my couch friend (and his new friend) must do. #fmsphotoaday #bear #snowman

it’s a snowman ornament today!

I especially like that only the eyes are embroidered, because the “carrot nose” and “coal buttons” are worked while crocheting the main body! Also it’s got my personal twist to it: a big belly

now let me share the pattern:
