Pieced Pastimes: Quick Star Ornaments

Quick Star Ornaments

Wow - The first day of December already! Yesterday, I decided that I had better get something done to prove my theory that this blogging idea would motivate me. I started sorting my fabric scrap boxes, as this is something that I have been meaning to do for a while. I have another huge bag of scraps not shown in the picture. As you can see, I didn't finish!

I got sidetracked looking at my little Christmas tree, and decided it needed some more ornaments. Time being of the essence, I grabbed some of my scraps and headed to the sewing room. This is what I came up with.

They worked up very quickly and I was able to make up 13 of these cute little stars in a snap. I would have used twine for the hanger, but alas - none was to be found so I used some black ribbon instead. I used a small zigzag stitch to sew together a sandwich of fabric, batting and fabric. Then, I trimmed the edges with a rotary wave/pinking blade. This was my end result.

And this is how they look on the tree!

That's all for today.
