11  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: A Snowflake In Memory of Her....(Img Heavy!!) on: December 04, 2009 01:45:44 PM
Well I was going to try and make a tutorial but there are just WAY too many steps! I wouldn't be able to fit all of them on here! But I will give you a few pointers!

First you should cut your entire sheet of Plastic canvas into 3"x2 7/8" squares. (This step is optional. But it's a big help when you actually start to cut out the snowflake.)



I don't have a pattern to go by...you're just gonna have to count out the squares. (Make sure you're holding the square the right way! 3" across and 2 7/8" down)
Make sure to cut out two. On the 2nd one you cut out the middle. BTW, it helps to have a pointy pair of scissors!





You start here. Make sure to keep some yarn out. This is how you keep it together without knots!


This is where you will start around the edges. Remember to always bring your needle through from the back.



You will go back later and cover the rest of the canvas.



No knots! Slide your needle through the yarn on the BACK of the snowflake.



After you finished all four corners. You'll move to the middle. You'll start it out the same way as the beginning of the snowflake.



This is what the middle of the other snowflake should look like when you are done. Again make sure to keep some extra yarn out and wrap around it so there are no knots!



Sorry I couldn't put a WHOLE tutorial on here. I hope this helps some! Feel free to ask questions!

What a neat idea!  I think they are beautiful!  Did you find patterns online or did you use hers as your pattern?

Thank you! I actually used hers. She had one snowflake that was unmade. I'll take pics and post so everyone can make some of their own!

Ok...so a bit of a back story. My Mamaw passed away January 19th of this year. This is my family's first Christmas without her. She was the glue that held us together. She was also a GREAT craft-er! She had 12 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. She made these awesome snowflakes that she would hang on the Christmas tree every year. She had one for each of her grandkids. Every snowflake had a picture of a grandkid in it too! It was kind of tradition to go to the tree and search for your snowflake! She was amazing...But anyways, I decided I would make a snowflake for each of my family members with her picture in the middle. So every year they could hang her on their Christmas tree like she always did for us. I hope they like them.


This is the snowflake before it's put together. She/I used plastic canvas and yarn.




I made 11 snowflakes altogether.



Here is the snowflake hanging on our tree without the picture.




Here is the snowflake with the pic of my Mamaw.





Enjoy!!
Let me know what you think!
Merry Christmas!

These are so great! My fave has to be Cindy Lou Who. You don't see much stuff with her on it! Plus, it reminds me of my daughter. Everyone used to call her Cindy Lou when she was a baby. I would love to know what kind of paint you used!

I love your Remembrance Day piece. It brought tears to my eyes. That was a horrible day but that painting is gorgeous. I hope you frame it!

Meet Miss Hoot.



You may think you recognize Miss Hoot. See Miss Hoot has a cousin who models for a living. That cousin was recently featured in Pottery Barn Kids. She thinks she's hot stuff. Her and Miss Hoot don't get along AT ALL. But it did get Miss Hoot thinking...."Maybe I should do some modeling." So she auditioned to be the Victoria's Secret PINK Mascot! Unfortunately, they turned her down. They told her she wasn't "sexy" enough. Ha! They gave the position to some dog who was "machine stitched".  Roll Eyes  So Miss Hoot got out the classifieds and found this amazing job! She is now the BFF to a sweet two year old girl! Miss Hoot told me that this job is way better than exploiting her body for a living! LOL

Hope you enjoy! Comments and Criticism Welcome!
