    I have been looking and looking ... I've even went to the 'coloring' pages ... but can't find a snowman / snowpeople / snowwoman pattern that is "cute" and "free" ... or even one I could purchase.

    I did a search on this site ... but everyone I've went through so far is no longer working ...

    I think I'm going to have to make my own patterns to use ... this isn't going to be pretty ya'll

    Any suggestions or patterns you all know of that you'd be willing to share (if allowed by the pattern copyright) ... OR any ideas to help me make my own pattern ...?

    Thanks

    What kind of snowman are you looking for? Give us a hint to what you think is 'cute'.

    Take a look at these - they are free:

    If you scroll to the right on this site & look at Jan thru Dec of 2009, they are all snowpeople appliques:

    ok--there are plenty online. here's a tip [you may know]

    when you see the google logo on the homepage, do NOT type in the search box. LOOK in the UPPER LEFT corner. CLICK on IMAGES, now when the searchbox comes up, TYPE snowman quilt pattern, there are pages of them!!! This is how you find IMAGES first, then websites. it is a sort of shortcut. just BE SPECIFIC when you use it & you will get more of what you are looking for.

    when all else fails, find a children's coloring book that has winter subjects in it and I"m sure you'll fins a snowman pattern to trace and use as an applique.

    Thanks for the tip on the search. I never knew that. It makes things a lot easier.

    The children's coloring books these days are a far cry from the ones of my childhood with the simple line drawings. I've been looking in them at the stores and find very few that have the kind of drawings I am looking for.

    I find mine in the dollar store, Walmart, etc. Sometimes in school supply stores, etc. Found my stock several years ago and keep using them again and again so maybe things have changed. The series I have (bought 6 out of a series of 10) is marked as "beginning coloring" for the very young children.

    I"ve also found very simple designs by checking out teacher resource sites on-line...not just quilting resources. Good luck.

    Hang in there. I was looking for an eagle and the old forum came to my rescue. Several times.

    I have a paper piece snowman? Would that do? Also an applique snowman. If you PM me with your address, I'll send it to you.

    http://www.secretsof.com/content/785

    Just click on any of them and then reset your screen to 400%

    I looked thru ALL my back issues of (1990 to now) of all the quilt & art mags I have. No luck :(
