Sewing Together

You can sew your stars together to create a thicker more sturdy star. This is a great option for turning these into toys, or using them to hang from a keychain or baby mobile. This is also highly suggested for your larger stars like Star 2 and 3 as it provides a lot more durability to your star (unless you’re sewing it onto an object of course).

To sew stars together, first crochet 2 of identical stars. After hiding the ends of both stars, keep the tail ends long. Line the stars up so that the front is facing opposite ways, and the points of the stars aline. Also try to make the hidden end on both stars as close as possible.

Begin sewing the stars together with a whip stitch using 1 of the two long tail ends. Make sure the stitches align. You can work the whip stitch into both loops of each star, or just the inside loops (front and back loops of either star).

Try to make sure points of your star are not covered up by a stitch as you sew them together.

If you sewed the stars together using both loops of each half, consider going backwards with a whip stitch around a second time in reverse. This can create “V“ seams which mimic a single crochet stitch and might look nicer.

When you return around the star, double knot the two tail ends and hide the ends in by threading them on a darning needle and sewing back into the center of the star.

Work 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook or into magic hoop (6)

    I searched the site and found this to purchase for $0, so was able to download it that way. Please fix the “Download PDF” button for others.

    Also, the written pattern for the moon neglects to mention you need to turn each row (pattern says round but should say row); this may confuse some so it should be corrected.
