1. Print out the star patterns and create permanent templates by following this tutorial. 2. Cut out two identical squares larger than your star shape. Pin the 2 wrong sides of your squares together and trace the star shape in the middle of the square. Sew along the traced line leaving one side open. Stuff batting inside the opening and then sew it also closed. 3. Cut out around the star with a centimeter border using the pinking shears.
