So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished! Luke 1:45

Seeing Stars

On Saturday and Sunday, I got into the Christmas spirit. How did I do that you ask? Let me show you.

First, you make a template:

Then you trace it onto some appropriately seasonal fabric:

Sew them up, cut them out, turn them right side out, and iron them nice and neat:

Stuff their little bodies nice and full and close 'em up:

Add a little personality and, of course, a jingle bell:

Tie on a hanger and you have a Santa Star ornament.

My favorites are the ones with Z Z Top beards.

By the way, I found these on the A Chelsea Morning blog and the author was kind enough to send me the pattern. She's one of my new favorite people.
