This cheerful folk-art snowman afghan and pillow set will keep you warm and cozy this wintry season. This adorable snowman, with charcoal buttons and nose to look like a carrot, is playing in the snow and even has a pillow pal for you to play with. This would be perfect to give your child to snuggle up or to tote around.
"For centuries, children have gaily awaited the winter's first snow. The children would roll large balls of that fluffy gift from above, to make their own special companion. The snowman would then be completed with a carrot for a nose, charcoal for the eyes and mouth, and sticks for arms, and a scarf to keep him warm. The snowman truly does come to life for the children who created their frosty friend."
