Scrappy Wednesday

One of the ornament kits from the guild meeting was for these cute Scandinavian Stars.  Steff used this tutorial to base her share with us.  The original tute uses 3 1/4" by 12" strips, but Steff redrafted them with 2.5" by 10.5" strips to use up left over Jelly Roll strips and scrap bindings. 

We all have those - I do.  I'll make up the kitted star and then dig for those random JR strips and hit the string tote for some goodies.  I am playing with scrappy no-sew stars today.  Heck, I may even get out the Christmas fabric tote that I have been avoiding and pull some seasonal prints.

Sewingly Yours,


  1. Made a bunch of these last year, be warned, they are addicting. Have fun.

  2. I made these last year for the grand children. I make them an ornament every year. Looking for this year's inspiration. Have fun.

  3. I love the Scandinavian stars! Just a word of warning though, I made about 60 of them as little Christmas gifts for our church families a couple years ago, and messed up the joint in my thumb by attempting to do too many each evening.

  4. We did these as a guild meeting project last year, but I had trouble getting my one lonely sample tight enough. I cut fabric for three so I suppose I should go back and try again.

  5. We made one of those at my last small guild meeting. Fun, but, a bit confusing. The photos you gave the link to are better that the video some of us were trying to use.
