DIY Sweater Sleeve Snowman

These cute sweater sleeve snowmen are a quick and easy winter craft project. This project similar to the sleeve pumpkin I made, is a great way to upcycle a old clothing into cute decorations.

This is a fun project to involve kids in. Younger kids can help draw on the snowman's face or stuff it, and the sewing part is easy enough that a child old enough to be trusted with a needle can do it themselves.

Sew Easy Sweater Sleeve Snowman

  • White sweater sleeves
  • Needle and thread
  • Something to use for stuffing
  • Permanent or fabric marker to draw on face and buttons (or you could use tiny real buttons and sew them on)
  • Fabric scraps to cut for scarves
  1. Cut out the sleeve or sew a long tube of white knit fabric.
  2. Gather the bottom of the tube, and stitch closed tightly.
  3. Stuff the bottom ball of the snowman.
  4. Gather the section of the tube directly above the stuffing, and stitch closed tightly.
  5. Repeat until you have the desired number of balls and are at the top of the tube.
  6. Gather the top of the tube, and stitch closed tightly.
  7. Draw on the snowman's face or sew on buttons.
  8. Cut a strip of fabric for a scarf, cut the ends to resemble tassels and tie onto the snowman.
