These Will be Wonderful in Many Color Combinations!
These patchwork star ornaments are easy to make and super charming. Depending on how large you make them, they can be hung on a tree or just about anywhere around the home. They will also be lovely attached to wrapped gifts, stuffed into stockings and wrapped up as gifts.
Choose a variety of fabrics to work with in coordinating colors. Make each star different or make them all the same. We can easily imagine them made in just about any fabric style and color combination, giving them many different looks. Pretty buttons add a nice decorative touch.
The following video by Crouton Crackerjacks shows you exactly how to make your own.

You’ll need a template for the star shape. While the template used in the video is no longer available, Heidi from Pollywoggles created a tutorial for a very similar star ornament.
She provides two templates. The large star is about 7″ across and the small star is about 5″. You can reduce either size by printing at smaller than 100%.
Any star shape will work. Check on Google for a template of the size you want.
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!
