Cute Little Stars - from Belinda

I got started making this little stars from Belinda's blog - and I couldn't stop. I cut and cut until I had stacks of squares.

Stacks of 2" squares

Stacks of 1 1/2" squares

Then I stitched some stars from Belinda's tutorial. It was so easy to do and I had such a great time. Belinda also made some pastel stars - very cute. Plus I got to tempt Sharyn into making some too.

My 5" stars

My 3" stars

I'm not as brave as Belinda with my colors - mine seem to be more plain. I want to loosen up and make some good scrappy ones like Belinda has made - I do, I really do. I'll dig through my scraps and see what I can find to jazz up the stars a bit.

My scrappy one wasn't the best choice of fabrics - but I did give it a try. I'll try again and get back to you.

Ok Sharyn - let's see some of your stars!!!
