I started making these adorable little stars a few years ago, and created entire sets as Christmas ornaments, then moved to attaching them to bobby pins for cute hair accessories. But these little guys have so many possible applications!
- stitched together as garland
- as an appliqué on towels, hats, scarfs, washcloths, skirts, or any number of different clothing choices
- hair accessories (bobby pin or headband)
- brooch pin
- stitch and stuff two together for 3D stars
- party decorations
Make a few yourself with this quick crochet pattern! I use standard US abbreviations.
