Pattern Description:

Starlight, starbright, first star I see tonight... My grandmother showed me how to make these folded stars almost 30 years ago! I can still vividly remember picking out the fabrics and learning how to make the star. She had an old cheese box that we covered in fabric, and then we put this star on top.

You can use the Folded Star in a variety of ways - table toppers, covered boxes, clothing and accessory accents, and more! This 10 page pattern includes full step by step directions for both a fabric covered box and a table topper. Color photos of key steps are also included.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Box 8" circle, Topper 9" circle


  • 1/4 yard each of 5 coordinating fabrics for the star (can also use fat quarters)
  • 3/4 yard of fabric for covering inside and outside of box
  • 12" square of scrap fabric (ex. muslin), will not be seen.
  • 12" square of fusible fleece

You Will Also Need:

  • Cardboard Box - 8" diameter by 4" high (purchase at Michael's or A.C. Moore).
  • Rubber Cement
  • Optional - 3/4 yard of fusible fleece (use to make thicker cover for box)
