I was working on project (which I will share later in the week) and I needed a moon and stars applique. I was rather surprised I had never designed one for Wee Folk Art, but since I needed to design one now, I made one up as an applique block. Designed to fit our standard 6" x 6" block, it can be reduced or enlarged to meet your needs. (I had to reduce the size to 40% for the project I was making.) The pattern can be found HERE.
Below is a diagram for the embroidered stars I made, which I call a Woven Star. When I made my first star, I simply used straight stitches to make the five point stars, overlapping the threads, but I didn't like the way the threads laid. So, I wove the floss, under and over, making the stars lay flatter, and giving an interesting look to the stars.
