Sewing Instructions:

  1. Pin the two stars, wrong sides facing, together and place the string or ribbon in-between the two layers. Ensure if you are using directional fabric the fabric is the correct way up!
  2. Straight stitch a 1cm allowance around the star, backstitching over the string/ribbon for strength, and leaving the last arm unsewn of the star.
  3. Add the stuffing into the star, pushing it away from the opening so you can top stitch it closed.
