January Calendar Page

January in Texas is usually cold and mushy. This December the rest of the country was having snow warnings but in Texas the cold fronts don't make it down here until January. So January is my cold weather baby page. I found a snow flake needle point pattern on the Internet and I stitched it onto my page. I used three strands of white floss, a 52" piece will stitch down one one row and up the other, I use tape to hold the ends down on the back side. I also sew small
flakes around the edge of the page. Next I cut a teddy bear from a pattern, he is inked on the edges and I give him stitch lines with a ultra fine sharpie. He gets a tag that reads: Everything with you I'll share except of course my Teddy Bear.
In the center of the page it reads: Teddy Bear Wishes, Snow Flake Kisses. I left room for photos of the baby that his mom will add. This page will slip into one side of the scrapbook and on the opposite side will be a blank calender page. It took me two hours to stitch the big snow flake but I think its worth it. The mom can add snowflake brads or photo corners with snowflake stickers.
