Free Pattern for Making a Beaded Snowflake Brooch in Red and Green
Summary: This is a free pattern for making a beaded snowflake brooch. You can easily finish this brooch with seed beads and felt.
This snowflake brooch is not completely beaded, because the beaded tree patterns are sewed on the felt snowflake. Nevertheless it didn’t influence my decision on naming it beaded snowflake brooch. I love snowflake so much! There are two traditional elements - snowflake and tree - in this brooch, and I used green and red seed beads to make it more festive on Christmas.
