Scrappy Scarecrow

I made this scarecrow using Scrappy's Scarecrow.  The crow is from Scrappy's Fall Crows.  
You can find the files here.  Rob has TONS of great files!

Using my Silver Bullet and a 30 degree fabric blade, I cut the hat, shirt, and overalls out of
some scraps of fabric I had on hand.  
The body, shoes, and crow were made from Recollections paper.
The leaves were leftover from another project.
I purchased the hay bale from Hobby Lobby.
I used raffia, purchased at Hobby Lobby, for the straw hair and at the arms.
The raffia was a little too thick for my liking, so I used a long needle to separate the strands.

Now, you are probably wondering why I did a snowman in September.  Well, it has been so hot and dry this summer and snow is cold and wet!!   And, I LOVE snowmen!  (Yes, I know the mittens do not match...LOL Have you ever tried to match plaid? LOL)

These are the products I used:

8 x 10 canvas from Michaels
Blue Craftsmart Wash Away paint from Michaels
White fleece for the snowman body
White flannel for the "snow"
Light blue satin for some snowflakes
Wonder Under for adhering the fabric to the mat
Snowflake rhinestones from Joann's
The mittens were made out of flannel scraps
The arms, nose, and eyes were cut out of cardstock scraps
