djbebe: tulle star
I made heaps of these for Christmas decorations - a good use for satin and other synthetics which aren't much good for anything else. Basically a long rectangle of tulle (the finer tulle worked much better) folded into a star-like shape, and satiny fabrics cut into stars and hand-sewed together. I initially tried gluing them together but it craft glue wasn't strong enough to hold them together, plus the glue came through the top layer of fabric and made an ugly splotch. And trying to push a needle through fabric that's been glued isn't very fun.
