DIY: Felt Star Garland

Hi everyone, I'm Steffi from herzekleid. I'm happy to share a little tutorial here on Lu's wonderful blog. So if you'd like to, you can make this colorful felt-star-garland with me.
You'll need: Felt in different colours, sewing thread, cotton batting, thick cotton thread, needle.

First you need to cut out a lot of felt stars. I used a cookie cutter to make a paper template and then cut out the stars.

Now make pairs of two stars of the same colour. Put a little bit of batting on one star.
Pin the two stars together and sew. You can sew by hand or with your sewing machine, which I did because it's much faster. :-) Still, as the pieces are not too big, this would also be a nice hand sewing project, I think.

When you've finished sewing together all your stars decide in which order you want to have them on your garland.

Start with the outermost star and pull your needle with the cotton thread through it as shown on the photo.
To prevent the star from gettingout of place, make one knot (or two knots) at each end of the star to secure it.
Continue with the next star and repeat it until your garland is finished!

Enjoy!

Thank you so much for sharing this pretty project, Steffi! :)
