Cut:

Yeti from fur felt, 2 mountains from grey felt, horn shape and face from pale blue felt and 6 mountain tops, 2 of each size from white felt.

Stitch mountain tops to one of the mountain shapes with white thread and a running stitch. Repeat with other mountain so they mirror each other. Set back aside.

Lay horn shape onto front of mountain front, place yeti body on top of horns and stitch down body with a running stitch and white thread.

Place blue face onto the yeti and stitch down with light blue thread. Add two french knots for eyes with black embroidery thread and stitch a smile.

Using white embroidery thread add fangs on both sides of his smile and define the arms with a few small stitches. Sew black nose into center with a few running stitches and black thread.

Stitch brown lines where you want your trees to be.

Stitch pine boughs with green thread making upside down Vs starting small and making them just a bit larger as you go down.

You have SO many options for the mountain back piece.

Just make sure your pieces are mirrored so they will sew together correctly.

Overcast stitch mountains together with grey thread switching to white over the snowy mountain tops, stuff before closing.

Sew a loop to top with black embroidery thread to help hang.

Happy Crafting
