June Ornament: Finnish Star

Finnish Fabric Star 

Elizabeth threw out the ornament challenge for June, and I have answered in the month of June, which is kind of a miracle. All it took was a simple Google search to stumble upon this Finnish Star at A Cherry On Top.

While the site provides instructions for a paper version, I switched mine up and made it using fabric. All it took was a little prep work, which included using fusible interfacing (heat-n-bond) to fuse two fat quarters together. By using the fat quarters, I was able to keep this project under $10. After ironing the wrong sides of the fabric together, all you have to do is cut and glue according to the directions and you can literally have a star in your hands in under 15 minutes. By using the fat quarters, I have enough fabric left to make four or five more stars, so watch out relatives! There may be a fabric star tied to the top of your Christmas presents this year.
