Let it snow!!

I have been trying to figure out a way to do some fun reverse applique stuff for sale in the etsy shop; I love, love, love my celebretees, but I'm so out of touch with pop culture that I don't even know who I should try to put on a shirt right now.  Then I had the idea to do a scarf for the winter...and of course the most iconic image I could think of for winter was a snowflake.

I set off on the task of designing my own snowflake.  This is much harder than it sounds.  First of all, when you have limited design skills, it takes forever to do something that I'm sure a better designer could do in a minute.  But I did it and have my own, original snowflake design to sell on the scarves.

This one is the prototype and as such has some flaws here and there.  I've learned a lot about doing this process with fleece and some other possible directions I can go with it, so I'm hoping the next ones are even more awesome than this.  But for a first try, I'm definitely pleased.  It will be on sale by tomorrow at the Etsy store for $18; the future incarnations will be $25.

I think the snowflake's really pretty, and I love the colors!
