Brrrberry

Brrrberry - silk and linen

Brrrberry

The Silk Berry features this snowy guy joined by his cardinal and chickadee friends, sporting his best hat and scarf - and of course the snow is falling around him.

The Linen Berry version still includes his winged friends, all on a swirling, snowy background. The top of this berry is made of a purchased foam snowflake and a stack of black buttons for a "top hat!"

NOTE: Silk and linen berry chartpaks have been sold separately for some time, and copies are likely still available from numerous retailers. However, due to the lack of silk gauze available for the foreseeable future, Brrrberry will be sold as a “partner” chartpak. This new format will include instructions and charts for both berries - but no silk gauze.
