stars upon thars

On SewMamaSew, one of my favorite sewing websites, I came across a link to these lovely fabric stars by Sofie Legarth. She calls them “spændings skyld”, which according to Google Translate means “merged stars” in Danish. Since I don’t know Danish, I thought I would be in for a bit of a challenge, but thanks to Sofie’s instructive photos and Google Translate, I was able to figure the directions out. And despite the mangled translation from Google, Sofie’s charm shines through in her blog.

What is marvelous about this project is that it is no sew–how cool is that?

Sofie’s directions call for four 8 x 30 cm strips. Since I operate in inches and feet, I made my strips 3 x 12 inches.

After I worked out how to make the first one, I can now put one together in about 10 minutes–not bad. I found using tweezers helpful in teasing the folded fabric strips under the folded bands.

Sofie’s fabric stars would make beautiful ornaments and present decorations, or, if attached to a strip of binding, they could be made into a Christmas garland.
