Scandinavian stars

To say I have a lot of fabric is an understatement. When my niece shared an image of these folded fabric stars i knew i had to find a tutorial. My husband wanted something to take his coworkers around christmas so i put together a batch of these to add to christmas cards for his coworkers. I loved them! Loved making them. Used some rando fusible glue strips i had to finish them off so they wont come unfolded. I want to make a rainbow series to hang year round next! !

you may have seen them done out of paper before. This is a common paper craft.

How cute!
I never thought about making those out of fabric. I have a huge box of paper stars of the same style that my son and I made some years back.

I found it a remarkably pleasurable task. I thought I would need to iron in between folds and that wasn’t the case so I could prep the strips and sit at my dining room table with the family while I folded them, then I later pressed them hot with steam inserting a bit of fusible glue strips inside.

absolutely a stash buster. Thats WHY I want to make more. I know we all have some fabric in great colors but maybe ho-hum patterns, this is a great way to pare that down!
