A good idea to take advantage of small scraps of fabric and some old jeans is to turn them into Christmas decorations.
These very decorative stars are made in a moment and we can use them to decorate the tree, decorate a Christmas wreath or hang them in the form of a garland.
Follow the step by step if you want to do them:
We prepare the fabrics that we are going to use and two star-shaped patterns of different sizes. You can download the patterns that I have used by clicking here.
We sew the small star by going over the edge in a zig-zag stitch.
We put another piece of denim underneath and weave a stitch following the edge of the big star.
You have to leave a piece of the star unopened to be able to fill it.
We trim the star leaving a small margin until the stitching and fill it by pushing the wool well to the corners. Then we close the opening with a handmade stitching and take the opportunity to place the ribbon that will serve to hang them.
We can tie them together with a string and use them as a garland.
Or hang them loose on the curtains or on the Christmas tree.
