Something about a snowstorm feels so cozy when you can sit and watch the flakes fall!
Let It Snow comes as a paper pattern. The design features two snowpeople who are cuddled up, watching snowflakes coming down around them. They both are dressed in scarves and hats, and one wears their heart on their chest. The text says, "Let it Snow." The design is stitched in shades of red, black, white, gray, and orange. PATTERN DETAILS: The model was stitched on 14 ct. Vintage Country Mocha Aida (Zweigart) using 2 ply thread. The stitch count is 97w x 60h and the finished design measures approximately 7"w x 4 1/4"h when stitched on that fabric. The pattern calls for whole stitches only. The model was stitched with threads from DMC and Weeks Dye Works. DMC equivalents are given for the specialty fibers. The pattern includes both a black/white symbol page as well as a color page, so you can choose to stitch from the format that works best for you.
WHERE TO BUY Since this is a paper pattern, it is only available through needlework shops. It will not be released as a .PDF. If your favorite shop does not have it in stock, let them know you'd like a copy. Most shops are happy to order one in for you. Shop owners, all wholesale orders should go through Dinky Dyes. RECREATE THE LOOK: Finish Fabric: The red/black checked fabric is from the Branded line from Sweetwater for Moda. It is currently out of print. Cording: I spun the cording using 6 full strands of DMC B5200 using my Kreinik cording drill. If you don't want to make your own, an alternative might be to use pre-made white cording (3/16"). Hobby Lobby carries some. Their brand is Merchant 41 and the SKU is 829341. Bow: The black ribbon is from 5th Street Studio on Etsy. It is a 1.5" wire-edge royal burlap ribbon and the item number is RG127802. I sealed the ends with fray-check. (Affiliate Amazon link.) The snowflake button came out of my stash, so no SKU--sorry! I feel pretty confident it was a seasonal item at Walmart, and that I found it in the craft section. The materials listed above are unique to this piece. The foundational supplies (the board, glue, batting, etc--stuff you can't see) are the same no matter what I am finishing. I use backing board, Aleens Tacky Glue, and Warm and White Craft Batting. I make cuts with a rotary cutter on a rotary cutting mat. You can see them along with links on the Tools/Organization page. One more time, here it is. Hope you enjoy!
