The first Sunday in Advent means the beginning of a four week period filled with baking, decorating, and in my case, crafting. Here is a simple free pattern for a Nordic snowflake ornament designed by me. It takes me about an hour to make one, so you can whip up a snowstorm. Let the chaos begin!
(Seriously, if the hustle and bustle has caught you, remove yourself at once. Christmastide was not intended to have you pulling your hair out or have kids so wound up they cry. Or you cry. Ignore it for the day, watch a winter themed movie like Frozen and pretend it’s June^^)
You will need
2 31×31 squares of Aida or other 18 count cross stitch fabric
1 skein embroidery floss in desired color; I used red.
A little bit of stuffing, or a cotton ball
A small piece of sturdy thread for hanging.
First, here’s the pattern in chart form. I may replace it with a better copy later. If you need to learn how to cross stitch, there’s some great instructions here. If that doesn’t help let me know and I’ll walk you through it. You can do it!
