Happy Holidays

Wishing everyone a beautiful holiday week-end and a wonderous New Year in 2012.

Little Snowflake Ornament / Copyright 2011 M2H Designs

In celebration of this time of year I am sharing a fun little snowflake pattern with you.  For now it is just a stitch diagram, so my apologies to those of you who can’t read those yet.  Maybe a good New Year’s resolution is to learn that skill as it does open the whole world of international patterns to you.  If you have trouble reading the chart because of size, click on the photo and it should enlarge it.

Once you’ve stitched up your snowflake and tucked in the ends, pin it out and use your favorite fabric stiffener to make it into an ornament. I prefer to brush the stiffener on once the snowflake is pinned out, instead of dipping the fabric in the solution first.  Once one side is dry I un-pin the flake and if needed will brush more stiffener on the back.

You can also sprinkle a bit of glitter over the flake while the stiffener is wet to create a sparkly snowflake.

Enjoy!
