Do you fuse or however the circles? So all we would do is the background and the circles? We would receive different ones? Undesided

Okay, I'm going this one too. The only thing though are we doing jewel tone fabrics kind of like what is on the site or fun fabrics like santas or snowmen or reindeer?

I think it should be any xmas fabric... snowglobes come in all variety.

Fusing only..... NO SEWING

Im sure anything that looks like what you might see in a xmas snow globe would suit, even perhaps snowflake fabrics?

Thanks Golo for the help.. boy talk about enthusiasm this is great.. Just so you know i have also posted this on CTTQ as well I think that everyone would love this!! so I wanted ALL my friends to get a snow globe from me... I hope everyone is on board with this....

Okay thanks to

Golo -- siggies
Between-siggies with full state/country
Anita -- NO SIGGIES
Marion --siggies
Iambuzzyma --siggies
Luvsquilting --siggies
JennQT --siggies
Redmadder--siggies
Gwennie --siggies
Bethany -- siggies
Mamu -- siggies
Redwork -- siggies
Gimpy/Laura -- siggies
Hummer =--siggies
Linda2b -- siggies
sheemoocow --siggies
Breeziepine -- NO SIGGIES

for Joining in so quickly!! I hope to see alot of members on board with this it is so very very very simple.. did I say this was simple?? all you do is fuse the Christmas fabric (hence Christmas in July) on background fabric...hopefully you can use a Christmas fabric for the background as well that is off white if not that is fine but please use an off white/beige/light tan background...Golo is absolutely correct it is a "no sew" and she also has the right idea on whether you would like a Siggie or not...my idea is that a siggie would be good cause it would be like getting snow globes from all over the world...

Is the enthusiasm catching to the others?? are you getting excited are you seeing what you can do with these easy little gems??

Hi Ladies,
I will join too!! It's super cute and simple. Mom and I have tons of Christmas fabrics to choose from including a great off-white one.
I was thinking too that Mom and I can turn ours into a gift for my sister, she has an enormous collection of snowglobes.
