A couple of months ago I saw a pattern for this star garland in a magazine (I can’t remember which one – I buy too many!).
I posted it on facebook for my crochet buddy to see, but another friend saw it and requested that I make a Christmassy version for him. I didn’t really need much persuasion! I used Red Heart Miami yarn in Jeans, Light Blue and Nature. It was lovely yarn to use. The stars worked up quite quickly, especially after the first one. I made a lot of them during my lunch breaks!
The stars were quite curly around the edges, but nothing that a bit of blocking couldn’t sort out.
And here it is in it’s new home…
I was pleased with how it turned out and my friend likes it too – hurrah!
This is the mini garland I had over the fireplace this year. I made it a couple of years ago and have had it out at Christmasses ever since.
It was super easy to make – simply cut out 2 star shapes from chosen fabric (probably best to use pinking shears as the raw edges will be on the outside) and start sewing them together. Sew in the string/ribbon as you go along. When 4 points of the star have been stitched fill will a little stuffing then sew up the remaining point. Repeat with as many stars as you fancy!
those little stuffed stars are SO CUTE. Isn’t it terrible when you see something someone else has made and it makes you want to drop everything and make one yourself…IMMEDIATELY 🙂
Yep, it’s really terrible. Sorry!
I love both of your garlands.
Thank you 🙂
Love the blue garland ~ blues are my favourite :O)x
I like the colour combination my friend chose – he has good taste!
Those stars are amazing – the wonders of blocking!
Blocking really does make all the difference!
I liked that picture of the crochet star garland and found the pattern and am going to try and make some over the next few months!
I’ll look forward to seeing them!
Love your garlands. I’m looking for some seasonal garland inspiration now my Christmas ones are down.
Glad you like them 🙂 Although stars are quite Christmassy they could look good in different colours.
These are so wonderful! The stars are amazing! and the hearts would be perfect for Valentine’s day! I love it!
Oops.. I guess I saw stars and thought hearts. I wonder if we could come up with a heart pattern similar to your stars! Anyway.. love them all.
It’s the colour that does it! Hearts would work brilliantly too 🙂
Ahhh Laura, these are beautiful I’m sure your friend is over the moon! Oh, and I think you should keep your stars up all year round – they are wasted on Christmas alone!
They are rather lovely! I think I might make some in different colours for other times of the year 🙂
