Fabric star tutorial

Earlier today I showed you my Brambleberry fabrics from Elephant in my Handbag.com so this afternoon I wanted to share with you what I have made with them so far...

Pretty fabric stars that I have hung on my Christmas tree and another set which I have hung from a gold beaded garland. I am loving them so much that I am thinking of keeping them out after Christmas and using them as decoration on my craft room! I have also added dried lavender to a few of them to put in my closet.

Don't forget! All four fabrics are available from online store Elephant in my Handbag.com who have kindly offered you my readers a discount of 10% off your first order with them.
The code is “Toriej”
