Last minute preparations

In preparation for this week's charity fair, I did a bit of last minute crafting.

A Christmas box, covered with a lovely old fashioned fabric.

And aren't these fabric stars fun? I found the tutorial here and after a bit of fiddling around, I understood the process and was ready to go.
I see more of these in my future.

Keep your fingers crossed for our bazaar so we'll be able to make lots of money for a good cause.

Liebe Vreni,
das sind aber schöne Sachen. Ich mag solche bezogenen Schachteln so gerne, und die Sterne sind wunderschön, danke auch für den Hinweis zum Tutorial. Ich drück Euch die Daumen, dass Ihr ganz, ganz viel einnehmt für einen guten Zweck.
Dir noch eine schöne Woche und liebe Grüße

Thinking of all the Christmas box workshops we did together. Good old times. Good luck with the sales and I am definitely going to try those fabric stars!

Oh the stars, how many memories! We used to make them from paper at school, alternating red and white.

the christmas box is adorable!

Those fabric stars remind me of some that I made many years ago using paper strips. I will have to check out how to make them in fabric. Good luck with the sale.
