Embroidered snowflakes on felt

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

I like to decorate my display tree with something different each Christmas. So, after drawing some inspiration from Pinterest, I decided that I would make some embroidered decorations this year.

The display tree is something that I made from a branch that I cut off the corkscrew hazel that’s in my garden. I painted it white and set it in a plaster of Paris.

I stitched different snowflake designs on to circles of felt and backed each one with another piece of felt to hide my messy handiwork!

The two pieces were sewn together with blanket stitch. I found it a bit tricky sewing the snowflakes neatly, but I’m pleased with how they’ve turned out.

One Christmas project completed. Many, many more still to do!
