Liberty Print Fabric
Patchwork Star Decoration Tutorial
With Christmas fast approaching,
now is the time to add those last little touches to your home!
I have made this 5 pointed patchwork star decoration
using 5 different Liberty Print fabrics
Starting at the top clockwise; Florabunda, Mitsi, Wiltshire, Capel & Hera
Taking your pattern piece cut 5 separate diamonds for the front
and then another 5 for the back

taking 2 pieces sew together and press open
leave a 1/4" unsewn in the centre of the star
do this on all seams
Join the next piece, press open
You will now have 3 joined together
I find it easier to press seams open as shown
so you don't get a bump
Taking the last 2 pieces sew these together
and press open
Now join these 2 sets together
and press open
Last seam, join and press
it may have a little bump in the middle but this will be hidden
once stuffed and buttons added!
Repeat the steps above for the other side
I use approx 25cm of ribbon, ric rac or string for the loop
with right sides of the stars together
insert the loop from where you want your top of the star to be.
In between fabric with the cut edges hanging out, pin
Sew all edges together leaving a small opening,
I tend to leave the opening one one of the bottom edges.
Cut off the excess fabric on the tips
Turn right side out and fully stuff
slip stitch the opening closed
Find two cute buttons, and the longest needle you can find
I broke into my Pin Cushion Button Jar that I purchased in Liberty's!
Sew a couple of stitches pulling tight before sewing on a button on each side
Now you are finished!
I have been lucky enough to be featured in The Liberty's Blog on their website
with my Elf Stocking tutorial
Excited, its like Christmas came early!!
I would love for you to take a look
