Pattern Description:

This is a paper piecing pattern for a Simple Star! A great beginner pattern, with simple yet stunning results. Who doesn't love stars?!

This pattern contains:
- brief instructions for this pattern
- star pattern pieces for three different sized finished stars:
3 inches
5 inches
10 inches
- Cutting templates for each pattern. (Cutting templates make it easier to cut your fabric with minimal waste, as well as make it easier to fussy cut fabric motifs and directional prints. It also speeds up the process of paper piecing when making multiple blocks! )

Are you new to paper piecing? Don't fret! I have a full tutorial on my blog, including supplies, tips, and step-by-step instructions, and LOADS of photos. You can find it here:

Print at 100% or no scale.

This pattern can easily be resized, but please note that you will need to adjust the seam allowances to 1/4 inch after printing and before cutting out patterns.

You may sell items made with this pattern. Please include in any description of your item, "made using pattern by Diane Bohn". Do not copy, alter, redistribute, or sell this pattern in any way. Thank you for respecting the time and effort I put into making these patterns, and directing others to where they can find the pattern, and not sharing .
