return on creativity: star applique pillow


I made this star applique pillow this weekend.  It was so easy and fun.  Here's how to do your own star applique:

1.  Draw a star on a piece of paper (just like your grade school teacher did at the top of your papers!)


2.  Trace around the star to create a template for your fabric.


3.  Cut your star tracing out of fabric.  I used felt since the edges don't fray.

4.  Pin or hold your star onto your fabric and sew a star just like you drew in step 1.  It's really pretty easy to sew because it is all straight lines!  When you get to the end of one straight line leave your needle in the fabric, lift your presser foot and sew in the next direction.

Pretty fun and I think they look cute!
