Snowflake Week : my crafts!!

...As I said somewhere (I think on my Facebook page!), the challenge is on!!!

So, I started with the snowflake patterns...





...Oh yes, I've even traced a fox muzzle, but I'll keep this one for the weekend!!

I've collect all the materials I needed....



  • some colourful (neon!) felt
  • some twines
  • metallic (nickel free) rings
  • a blue metallic chain (you'll see it later!)
  • a needle
  • a pair of scissors
I traced the snowflakes patterns on a piece of tracing paper. I cut them off and placed them directly on the felt, keeping them in place with the help of a pin. I used a pair of scissors with straight blades.




For each colour, I've cut out 2 snowflakes. In total, I had 2 pink (large size), 2 green (medium size) and 2 orange (small size).



From the above photo, you can see that I decided to cut 4 extra small snowflakes (white)...
What I did with all of them??? I had 2 projects in mind....!!!!

I paired each couple of snowflakes. I started to work with the colourful ones...


....for the first craft, I chose a blue metallic chain....


...and I sewn them, paired, with the blanket stitch and the backstitch, using the twines...




Completed the sewing, I added some metallic rings at each snowflake, so that I could attach them all to the blue chain...



....I have a new necklace!!!!



....but what I did with the little white ones????

Take a peek...








I have a new pair of earrings, too, and...


What do you think of all my work (a part my silly self portrait!!! ;oD ) ?????

You know what??? I'm going to link them at Craft-A-Day : Fox Week ! ..... eh! eh! eh!
See you there, too??? ;oD

xxxx, Alessandra
