Christmas Stars with Felt & Glitter

Only 1 week left till the big day! are you ready? have you everything done? or are you running around like a headless chicken? hhmmm I find I like the build up & if I am organised I enjoy it more.

I made these a few weeks back so thought I would share, so here’s a quick little tutorial on making some glitter stars using some glitter fabric. Its kinda a follow on post from last week, you can read it here.  What can I say, I love a bit of glitter !

These are perfect to hang around the house or gift for those last minute token presents. My kids gifted some to their teachers.  On some I used felt and on others I used some Christmas fabric against the glitter.  I was just experimenting really but I thought they turned out ok.  Here’s some.

Fabric Glitter Star - Tutorial

Materials Needed:
Glitter Fabric, I get it from CloudCraft
Square felt pieces or fabric
Scallop scissors
Sewing machine & thread to match
Stuffing
Twine or ribbon

  1. Take your glitter fabric piece and cut out your star shape. I just traced the shape on the back and cut, the fabric is pretty sturdy.
  2. Now take your piece of felt,  and machine sew the glitter star shape onto the felt piece. Don’t forget to leave a little bit open for the stuffing.  When you have the stuffing in, place your bit of twine/ribbon inside near the tip  & finish sewing the star to the felt piece.
  3. Using your scallop scissors, cut around the felt, don’t cut too near your sewing line, you want to to leave a little scallop edging.  See the picture below.
  4. Fabric Glitter Star - TutorialThat’s it, all done! you don’t necessary have to use the glitter fabric, you can use this method with plain fabric, but the glitter fabric makes it sturdy and of course its glitter, any excuse to use it!

This more than likely will be my last post for 2016, so wishing you all a Happy & Peaceful Christmas.

See you in 2017!
