Pattern Description:

Last year I was handed some gold thread, 2 small scraps of silk, a piece of wide ribbon and a large button... I was inspired!

So here's what I made: a funky, sparkly patchwork star perfect to hang on your Christmas tree or around the home. They are also great for using up those scraps that linger in your sewing box!
