Snowdrift Table Runner - Snowflake #8

A snowstorm is brewing!  

Snowflake trivia -
According to Guinness World Records, the largest snowflake in the world was 15" wide and 8" thick.  This was recorded on 28th January 1887 by Matt Coleman at Fort Keogh, Montana.  I'm not sure if I believe Matt.  

Snowflake #8
Using simple stitches, adding buttons and beads, this a pretty quick snowflake to stitch up.
The first step is to whip stitch the small circle to the medium circle using the Sulky 12wt thread.
  Then embroider these two before stitching them onto the large circle.  

If you look closely at my snowflake it's pretty obvious that my stitches are not uniform and that's perfectly OK!  Nothing in nature is perfect so my stitching isn't either.  There isn't a need to trace the design.  These are simple enough to eyeball.  If you feel you need a little help, you can use a Pilot FriXion pen which will disappear with the heat of an iron or another type of temporary marking tool.

The Snow Cone patterns will come with a card of vintage Christmas images.   Cut them apart and dip the sides in Elmer's Glitter Glue to add a little sparkle to the cones!

Aren't they fun?!  These little clothes pins worked great to hold them while they dried.  I didn't dip the bottom of them because it will be hiding inside of the cone.

Snow Cones pattern coming soon!


  1. Sweet! Looking forward to making some cones! :-)

  2. Thank the cones. On another note.....I am stitching the snowdrift table runner. All the beads are cream in color. That is until I have sewn them to the runner . Then mysteriously they turn silver! Is anyone else experiencing this? I am not concerned about the color. It looks pretty. Many thanks!
