This is a Great Project for Scraps!

These beautiful fabric ornaments are great for the tree and for decorating wrapped gifts. They can also be included in greeting cards for special surprises.

Make them up in two coordinating prints or use one print for a solid-looking star. Metallic fabric gives them a bit of sparkle but other prints will be wonderful too.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
