First I will be sending everyone either a green 10.5 inch square block, as pictured here, or a red square block, along with a wooden "stand" already cut to the correct measurements.
You will also receive a paper template for the correct size circle needed to make the globe part of the block. Please choose a Christmas design that looks like it could be a scene in a snow globe, or at least the closest you've got, as I did here and fussy cut it so that what remains will look slightly grounded and not like it is floating in air.
I can't decide on if I should embroider snowflakes around the background fabric, sew some iridescent sequins on to the circles to make it look like glitter in the globes, or both. Any thoughts?
Thank you so much ladies! I am really excited to make this for my mom. She used to have quite a lovely snow globe collection, amassed over several years. And then one fateful night, the shelf they were displayed on got knocked pretty hard by the shoulder of a teenage boy creeping home in the night and they all came crashing down. She has never tried to replace them, but really loves remembering them. I thought this would be a good, unbreakable substitute! :)
