Today I started making the snowflakes to hang from the mantle, for a bit of wintery cheer.
Being in the Southern Hemisphere it's hard to come up with winter themed crafts that don't end up looking too Christmassy.
For Autumn I used some lovely felt from here to make this and have been wondering what I could do to replace it.
While I'm not the best at embroidery I thought I would whip up a few little snowflakes that I could use to decorate the fireplace. Each hoop is only 10cm across, and I plan on making them into little mini cushiony type things.
In my search for snowflake patterns (I ended up drawing my own) I chanced upon this site. While the snowflakes I made were far too complicated for me to sew, it was a bit of fun.
