There’s something magical about the first snowfall of the season. It covers everything like a fluffy white blanket and children rush outside to play.
But even after it has all turned to grey sludge and people are sick of cold and ice, you can enjoy these beautiful snowflake motifs on this hand-stitched Snowflake Table Runner.
The pattern uses medium to heavy linen fabric and perle cotton thread so you can easily customize the colours.
The snowflake embroidery is done with pinch stitch, a unique stitch that adds both colour and texture.
It is assembled with reversible patchwork seams, so it doesn’t require a lining fabric.
The basic size is approximately 16″ x 36″, but it can easily be made longer or shorter by changing the number of snowflake units. I made a long runner with six snowflakes for my big table.
Pattern is available in my shop or at Etsy.
