Snowflake After Blocking

SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC

Here are a few different pictures of the same snowflake that I blogged about yesterday after completing the blocking process.  The first two pictures are showing it hanging from my shelf with just an ordinary paper clip.  But this nice thread and blocking procedure keeps it from needing any type of stiffening agent.

As you can see all the little snowflake arms keep their shape perfectly.  The picture on the black fabric is laying flat.  This size would make a cool coaster or mug rug for that warm cup of tea during the winter months!!

Now you can be creative and add some pretty, tiny pearl beads as accents.  Use a transparent/nylon beading thread and hang several from your windows or add to your Christmas tree as an ornament or an awesome gift tag.   Would make a lovely applique for a pillow or on the front of a little girl’s jumper.  The possibilities are endless.

I am going to make several more ~~ maybe a winter garland to decorate my mantel.  Have fun with your snowflakes and would love to see a “snow and  tell”!!      🙂

HAPPY CREATING!!
