Christmas Ornaments and a felt star revisited

Christmas Ornaments and a felt star revisited

Last year I made the glorious felt star from the Purl Bee Blog in extra large as a tree topper. Although it looked good, I secretly wished I had stuffed it. The arms looked wonky and wrinkled (although I used a 2nd layer of felt on the inside to stabilize it) and it was not easy to make it look even and smooth.

This week, I cut up the links between the two stars and made a cross cut in the middle of the back to add some light stuffing. Then I stitched the links together again – no need to close the cuts in the middle since they are in the middle of both stars and not visible. Also you can add or take out more stuffing if you are not entirely happy with it, later. So here are the results:

I promised you a picture of the 3 christmas ornaments and here they are:

This door is my absolute favorite. The wreath is so beautiful to stitch up and I think I could use it for some christmas cards. The pattern is the “Sweet Home Ornament Set” by Alicia Paulson.
