Our sparkling felt stars project pack has everything you need to create four ivory felt hanging decorations with a sparkling hand embroidered “wire wrap” design.
All you need to do is choose the designs and embroider each star with a simple split stitch.
This is a great project for those new to embroidering on felt using specific techniques to create a design without marking the image on the fabric.
Once embroidered, the pieces are put together with the wadding and sewn using a small blanket stitch.
These delightful little stars measure about 8cm x 8cm x 5mm when complete and look great on the Christmas tree or strung on a garland.
We have used four lovely thread colours; ruby, gold, twilight (iridescent lilac) and kiwi.
Everything is pre-cut and the threads supplied are the highest quality Madeira metallic and cotton mouline.
The kit comes complete with materials, designs and full instructions and makes a great gift.
Basic Skills required:
You will already need to know how to do a back stitch, running stitch and a blanket stitch and be familiar with how to use stranded embroidery threads.
We always carry a supply of coloured felt so If you require another colour option, please just ask and we can easily put the pack together for you.

both my friend who I had a kit sent to, and myself who ordered the kits, were very pleased wth the kit and contents, all well packaged and a lovely seletion of fabrics etc to create with. a nice unusual kit.
This kit caught my eye when I saw it on Craft Courses, it looked so pretty and fresh colours. I received mine very quickly and it is so nicely packaged and a good deal of fabric and other embellishments too. I set great store by how things I buy are packaged up and this was really good.
I since ordered another kit to go direct to a friend and like with me she received it very quickly and is delighted with it.
Thank you Maire for such a lovely kit
This kit arrived earlier this week and is nicely packaged and has everything needed to make the item.
The instructions look clear and the end product looks like it will be beautiful (depending on my skill!).
The only reason I didn't give this 'excellent' is due to the fact that there's no print out for the stitches required, I'm going to look them up on YouTube as I think I know what I'm doing, but a simple print out showing how to do these stitches would be useful for others.
Overall, I'd buy this kit again, or another kit from the same maker.
Response from Maire Curtis Lakeland Studio:Hello Louise,
