Sweet (and yet not tasty) are these felt Peppermint Candy Stars! I love re-posting this project because the photo has the cutest fabric ever in the background... little white scotties with red polka-dot bows! Squee! The star is nice, too (inside joke).
As far as instructions on how to make them, there isn't much to it... just use the pattern to cut two stars from white felt and whip stitch around the edges with red perle floss, stuffing with fluff before you get all the way round. Oh, add the button first... or last if you forget (like I usually do).
You can stitch up a bowl-full of these in no time, for instance while watching a cheesy Christmas movie. They work splendidly in many situations, like as ornaments on a tree, or even on prezzies. I came up with the star design around the same time as the flat version of my Scotty Dog pattern, as you can see from this photo...
In fact, Elizabeth of Creative Breathing even combined the stars and some flat scotties with the dangles from the Advent Calendar and made a super-cute garland with loads of gingham ribbon and ricrac...
