You Will Need
- Fabric, one fat quarter
- Polyester fibrefill
- Ribbons and trimmings
- Dowel or stick, 30cm (12in)
- Erasable marker pen
Fold the fabric in half right sides (RS) together then draw round the template on one side to mark out the star.
Sew around the edge of the star along the drawn lines leaving a small gap at an inner point for turning through.
Cut the fabric 5mm (¼in) outside the stitching line all round then trim away the points and notch in to the corners.
Turn the star RS out.
Stuff the star firmly.
Take a length of ribbon and wrap it around the stick gluing it in position at the top and bottom.
Pop the stick into the gap in the star and sew up the gap around the stick.
Take some lengths of ribbon and trims and tie them around the stick just below the base of the star.
