    Question vintage cocklebur doorstop pattern

    i need help finding directions for a old pattern for a doorstop made out of 5 pointed stars.
    The article reads:it takes a dozen flowers, each made of five covered diamonds to form a cocklebur.
    they finish 8 inches high. you will need some gravel and cardboard. the kit includes assortment of
    fabric, a dozen matching buttons for centers, etc... from newspaper clipping circa 1930.
    By the picture, the diamonds are sewn together to make 5 pointed stars. These are then connected
    together by two sides to each other. The gravel would give it weight,,,,
    Showed the picture to my 83 year old Mother and she remembers someone having one,but remembers it as being larger. But has no idea of how it was made.
    Any ideas? have you seen the directions for it?
    Just thought if anyone could help it would be here.
    thanks for any ideas.

    A friend of mine described one of these to me just the other day & got me really curious. So, I googled away and found these two links, one of which is a tutorial. Have any of you made these? Here are the links:
