Bev explained that we would start by making the large star and we were provided with templates.
The large stars were cut out in our choice of colour and then an inner star was embroidered in place and decorated with embroidery, sequins, beads and small Christmas decorations.
By lunch time most members were well on their way to finishing their first star.
Once the front was decorated the two pieces were joined together leaving a small gap for stuffing and then closed.
By the end of the meeting members had made one star and most has made a second. The stars were then taken home to be turned into tree decorations or a garland. These will then be brought to the Christmas meeting for the competition.
Most members chose to use the traditional Christmas colours of red, green and white decorating with lots of bling
Thanks Bev for a good fun day and making a pretty decoration to brighten our homes at Christmas.
