The Selvage Snowman Saga: The Abominable Snowman!

He's getting huge! I can't say I planned on him being gigantic, but that's what happens when friends start giving me selvages, and I'm having fun, and I have to keep adding more to keep each of the eight sides of each snowball somewhat even ...
-
He's just laying there in the pic, the three snowballs aren't attached. I'm also going to be piecing him into the background, so that will round out the outside of each snowball.
Here's the rough shape of his hat and part of his scarf. With the hat on, he's about as tall as me. And I'm 5 foot 8.

I have started cutting some Christmas fabric for the border. These are random widths and will be spaced between selvage groupings.

He's daring - but your friends are going to have to keep their salvages to themselves or there won't be room for him.
