I decided that I wanted to make a flake for a big throw pillow (22"). This is how I adapted her directions
I decided to make a pattern for 1/2 of a flake, so I could see how the snips that I planned would look, before I committed to the fabric. I made a centering crease on a 11x17 piece of paper, then lined up my hexagon ruler to mark the angle.
So I went back and trimmed the paper to make a 1/2 circle with all the folding lines.
Open it up and decide if you like it. I considered making the snips bigger so it would look lacier, but then decided that I wanted to quilt facets into the final, so left it a little chunkier.
The folding process means that the cutouts on the inner layers of fabric will be smaller than the ones on the outside. I went back and trimmed these to size with small scissors.
Oh, and if you are curious about the color scheme....I first headed to the blue bin. Then realized that I emptied that stash and didn't have anything that really worked. I considered a dark green - like snowflakes in a forest. The ah-ha came as I was digging through the green box. My Christmas decorations changed to lime and raspberry the year that I couldn't resist the Magenta Metallic fake tree. I could put out lime green snowflake pillows with the Christmas decorations, and not feel bad about leaving them out well into Spring.
