Mrs. Frosty & Snow Baby

Mrs. Frosty and her baby have arrived in a new collage by Leslie McNeil.

“The Mrs.” is just a tiny bit old-fashioned, sporting a classic, gorgeous wool cape, trimmed in luxurious velvet. Leslie had lots of fun adding a bit of modern flair to her face, a bit of make-up, complete with a hint of eyelashes {black flowers with white petals} and eyebrows in black. Leslie loved designing her lips, particularly, and it was fun to stitch that simple black line through to emphasize them. She wears a contemporary headband, of which is a base of shiny silver material ~ sporting a lovely adornment of flowers, {naturally}!

What makes this design even more sweet is the little snow baby by her side, too! Baby Frosty is all “fresh and silvery” in the same silver metallic fabric from Mama’s headband, {from my stash of course!} This silver metallic fabric has a swirl pattern texture that also ties in with the swirls on Mama’s cape. The little snow baby is darling with his cute little golden brown wool scarf and hat ~ a hat that is just a bit too big ~ complete with matching trim from Mama’s cape, too.

The background fabric for this design was a batik from Leslie's stash. It kinda reads like an old-fashioned wallpaper to me ~ she love the subtle flower pattern it brings in a very soft pastel purple, peach and taupe color-way, and it’s a beautiful complementary background to this piece.

The cape features a beautiful purple-blue plaid wool with fun details such as velvet buttons, underlined with purple and white edged flowers, a silver metallic fabric for a button on her cape collar, and an iridescent ribbon on the edge… and of course more flowers creatively collaged on top.
