Dreaming of a white Christmas this year? Take matters into your own hands and stitch up a batch of sparkly felt snowflakes to hang on your tree
• 1 sheet (or 15cm x 10cm) of white felt
• 5mm clear AB sequins
• 775 DMC embroidery floss
• 8 inches of jute twine (or thin ribbon)
• Embroidery needle
Cut out two snowflakes from the felt. Attach a sequin to the center of the front snowflake piece using one strand of embroidery floss. Work outwards creating a “x” shape, alternating sequins with a small straight stitch.
Decorate the rest of the snowflake. Start from the centre sequin and work outward, alternating stitches and sequins in a pleasing pattern.
Layer the snowflake pieces (sequins facing up) and stitch them together using two strands of embroidery floss. Be sure to securely attach the jute twine loop at the top of the snowflake.
