Brian Snow Buddy Has A Revised E-Pattern

Brian Snow Buddy was the first shelf sitter doll that I designed and is one of my favorites. The reason couldn't be because he has a story associated with him regarding one of my grandson's - or could it?

“Brian Snow Buddy”is a 5” Snowman Doll E-Pattern from our Winter Series.  His Pattern Category - Skill Level is Beginner.  His e-pattern contains 7 pages.


He is a free-standing snowman with a warm & natural cloth body, embroidered face with black eyes, flannel vest, fringed scarf, snow cap with bell , and carries a small “I (heart) snow” sign. Small bows decorate his vest.



"Brian Snow Buddy" loves to snowboard and is always looking for a challenge. He looks for the toughest and steepest hill he can find. The steeper and rockier the better. He is a bit of a dare devil and, so far, has broken any bones.

He is also a bit of a flirt. All you have to do is look at his "MySpace" page to attest to that.

Here's the story behind my Brian Snow-Buddy doll:


I posted this story on my Linda's Blog, but thought you might enjoy reading it here. Here's the story:

The snowguy to the left is called "Brian Snow Buddy" and is named after one of my grandsons.

I named him that because he is just so adorable, as is my grandson.

He's my buddy, as is my grandson.

He's my pal, as is my grandson.

He's so squeezable, as is my grandson.

He's just so huggable, as is my grandson.

He's just so lovable, as is my grandson.

He's so......Stop it, Nana. You're embarrassing me.

Who said that? "Brian Snow Buddy" or my grandson Brian? Both.

Nah! They both love compliments.

When I was designing this doll he kept telling me "make me like Brian." I know, you think I'm crazy that the dolls talk to me. It's bad enough that they talk to me after they're created but before too. Well, yah.

Anyway, I had to make something that was as adorable, squeezable, lovable and excitable as Brian was as a little boy. Still is for that matter. He had the cutest fiery red cheeks. Talk about excitable. At Christmas time he could barely control himself.

Back to the story. So, "Brian Snow Buddy" became the most adorable lovable, excitable, and squeezable snowman around. Go on, give him a squeeze or a hug. He'll love it. So will you.

Brian Snow Buddy just loves the snow, as does my grandson.

"Brian Snow Buddy" is strong in body, as is my grandson.

He's determined, bold and brave, as is my grandson.

He's stubborn, staunch and firm, as is my grandson.

He's powerful and forceful, as is my grandson.

He's bulky in figure, thick set and corpulent, as is.......OOPS! That's not my grandson.

He's a lean, mean fighting machine and I LOVE HIM.

Stop it, Nana! You're embarrassing me.

Who said that? My grandson or "Brian Snow Buddy?"
