Thursday's Treasure

Oh, how I love it when a customer asks, "Do you think you could....?".  I especially love it when I can say YES! - or at the very least, let me try and see.
Someone wondered the other day if I could make one of my fabric stars larger.  I replied that I absolutely could- how large was she thinking, and what color did she want?  She wasn't fixed on a certain size- just wanted it to be large and sturdy.  And peacock blue, deep yellow, and shades of green. 
I poked around in my fabric stash and quickly realized I wasn't going to find one fabric with all of those colors.  So I had a personal *aha* moment and realized I could use several fabrics, which would also help me increase the size.
I couldn't wait to make this last night, and I absolutely LOVE the look of this new extra large star.  It measures a whopping 10.5" from point to point!  The blend of fabrics can really tie a room together, and this is strong and sizable enough to hang on a wall or front door.  Gone are the days of worrying over not having the right colors in a star fabric- this is like making my own fabric.  And, like snowflakes and fingerprints, no two of these will ever be the same!
