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!
