20 Different Snowflakes

     These are 20 different snowflakes for 20 innocent children.  The snowflakes are going to the new Sandy Elementary School in Connecticut.  All of the snowflakes were done in size 20 crochet thread.  They were all done by Christmas Eve, evening.  I was hoping to get them sent out by Christmas Eve, but will have to wait until the day-after Christmas.









Patterns:  "Snowflake 2" by Sharon, "Stella di Edda Schneider" by Edda Schneider, "Rosie" by Lyn Morton,  "Motif #13" by Teiko Fujito, "Elmo's Snowflake" by Heather's Designs, "Hearts in a Snowflake" by Jon, "Tatter's Round Robin for Beginners" by Georgia Seitz, "Shamrock" by Lyn Morton, "Triangular Medallian" by Lisa Trumble, "#'s 10, 11,19, 21, 30" by Myral Piper...her book is called Tatting, "Trefoil Snowflake, Tiny Snowflake, Whirlaway Snowflake, Feathery Snowflake, and Simple Snowflake" by Vida Sunderman, and one I started out wrong and improvised.



Snowflakes for elementary school Sandy Hook:
Lets make as many snowflakes and send out by 12 Jan:  they can be tatted, crocheted, knitted, beaded, woodworking, etc..
This was a tragic event.  Please help out.  Here is a link to my pinterest page on tatted snow flake patterns:  http://pinterest.com/sandhollowgems/tatting-patterns-motifs-snowflakes/


Welcome Students to a Winter Wonderland
When school resumes for Sandy Hook, it will be in a new building. Parent-volunteers are working to ensure that the students are welcomed back by a winter wonderland with the entire school decorated with as many unique snowflakes as possible. We encourage senders to be as creative as possible, remembering that no two snowflakes are alike. Please make and send snowflakes by January 12, 2013 to the Connecticut PTSA address at the bottom of this page.

  2. I am sure these delicate tatted snowflakes will be considered very special, since so many of the snowflakes are going to be large paper cutouts. Seeing them all together in a collection is wonderful!
