Fabric Magic Stars....
You have seen these on the internet and elsewhere. Jennifer Bosworth of Shabby Fabrics has a wonderful video on how she creates these. She calls them Fabric Snowflakes. I like them for year round so I am calling mine Fabric Magic Stars. My blog friend Robbie of Robbie's Paw Prints blog introduced them to me last year and I made a few. Thank you Robbie. Just like potato chips!
No matter what is or is not going on and no matter how little time there is I try to make gifts for those I love. Here are some photos of my steps. I select my coordinating fabrics and cut them up. Then I cut up the Heat n Bond Ultra Hold.
Here you see my stages. I am making half a dozen or so. With my newly cleaned and organized studio I really have lots of room for every step of the way.
Another view of the steps. Removing the paper backing and pairing the two fabrics for ironing.
Here you se me preparing for the hot glue steps. I am almost done. Check out the link I have included and you just might want to make some yourself. They really do go together quickly.
And...they are light as a feather for mailing. Just be certain to put in a good sturdy box for transporting. Let me know if you make any of these. I would love to see your photos.
It is pouring rain as I type and it has rained all night. We had rain Thursday, Friday and now today. The snow is staying up in the highest elevations and is making the ski resorts happy. I am very happy it is not snowing here. Crowds and traffic are crazy enough just with rain.
I love visiting your blogs and seeing all the beautiful decorations. We are not decorating at all this year since the For Sale sign is up. We don't want to offend anyone who might celebrate a different holiday than Christmas...or celebrate nothing at all. Therefore I am really enjoying all of your ideas and decorations. I promise I won't miss a moment of the Magic of Merry Christmas...after all...I still BELIEVE. I feel the days are flying past as fast as Santa's Reindeer must fly on Christmas Eve.
Our little town is busy with Victorian Christmas and that is very magical. Here is the link to see what it is all about. People come from far and near to enjoy this bit of Magic.
Stay well and safe and warm. Enjoy this wonderful season of love with family and friends.
