We haven’t had a winter snowflurry in NYC yet and who knows with our recent spell of tepid weather if it’ll happen anytime soon or even before we bid farewell to 2015.
Since SMPCRAFT prefers the process of making over waiting, starting today until the end of 2015, we challenge you to make a snowflake!
Use paper, yarn, wood, beads, paracord, pencil, ink, paint, sharpies, clay, concrete, metal, cake flour, sugar, chocolate…to create a dazzling snowflake. Make one snowflake or an entire blizzard!
To get you started, we’re giving you TWO FREE SNOWFLAKE PATTERNS to download from 100 Snowflakes to Crochet by Caitlin Cainio.
