I had so much fun with my faux patchwork shabby hearts a few weeks ago, I decided to make a few more… with a festive touch.
So I came up with these adorable shabby stars and trees.
I think they’d make great gift tags or tree ornaments.
Or maybe… just hanging about with your Christmas décor.
They are surprisingly simple to make and if you love the look of patchwork, but don’t have time to make the real thing…. I think you’ll love this shabby project.
You are only limited by your fabric choices!!

What I particularly love about this project is that it is not meant to be perfect.
It’s the little imperfections that gives these shapes their character.
[Pin for later]
To make the star and tree template, I simply drew the shapes freehand. Mine are approximately 10 cm high (4 inches).
The trees I made with strips of irregular sized fabric and the stars with randomly cut squares and rectangles.
Nothing was measured in this project… all fabric pieces were cut freehand.
