Bottlecap Snowman

As the summer drones on, it seems harder and harder to find time to sew. I am still trying to sort things out in the spare room and really can't wait to start moving my stuff up there. I'm hoping to find some time to dye some more fabric this week. The southern US summers are ideal in temp and humidity for fabric dyeing, even if they are not ideal for me!!
So I've been trying some smaller projects and ideas and here is what I've come up with - a snowman (ornament) made out of bottle caps. I think he's cute! He needs a hat, and I haven't settled on what I want to make that out of yet. I may audition a few things before I decide, but I think this little guy has potential. What do you think?

He's sooo cute - and it just so happens I collect "hand made" ornaments.
