Now we can make the very same stars from fabric. The colors and patterns of strips cut from fabric give the stars a whole new look while being just as charming.
Fabric stars are wonderful for the Christmas tree, or display them around the home all year around. They also can be attached to a gift or tucked into a card.
You can get the entire family involved in making this easy project. Fold and press 3″ strips like bias tape, then use four of them to fold into a star. Attach a hanging loop of embroidery floss or thin cord with a few hand stitches and step back and admire your new creation.
Vary the size of the stars by changing the width of the strips. Wider strips will produce a larger star.
The pattern seems to originate from Danish blogger Sofie Legarth. Visit her site to see how she attaches a ribbon for hanging.
We discovered two tutorials in English. The first, from Crafting a Rainbow, has several beautiful examples and clear construction photos. The measurements are in centimeters.
The second tutorial, from The Knitting Stagehand, provides good instructions and measurements given in inches.
