Folded Fabric Ornaments


Did you ever make these folded stars out of paper strips when you were a kid? ;)

I've been playing around with making these Danish stars with fabric strips, they are so sweet and make great ornaments (and gifts!).


I had a feeling friends would be asking me how I made these, so I put together a tutorial that's posted over at BERNINA's WeAllSew blog today. Click here to go straight to the Danish Star Ornament tutorial, which includes lots of video snips showing the different steps in folding and tucking to create the stars.


If you have a good amount of fat quarters in your stash, or even pre-cut 2 1/2" strips, these are the PERFECT project! If you don't want to sew the one seam to create these stars, just use 1" wide ribbons in different colors and follow the same instructions.

I hope you enjoy the project!

A lady taught this in my little quilt guild a couple of months ago. It was a bit confusing, but I got mine finished.
