    They are so pretty. What beautiful ornaments for a Christmas tree. I wouldn't want to pack them away after Christmas. Great job.

    I saw the tutorial on these but is there also a written pattern for them...that says how much fabric is needed, etc? I'd love to try these for next year!

    After seeing them on this board I started making some and it's addictive. They are called Folded Star Ornaments:

    Here are other links:

    good pics:
    http://www.make-stuff.com/projects/quiltball.html
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-31032-1.htm

    best instructions:
    http://quilting.about.com/od/holiday...abric-star.htm

    Each ornament takes one 3" Styrofoam ball, one 2.5" strip of each of three fabrics (light, medium, dark), some ribbon, a TON of super-fine straight pins, and hot glue gun for putting the final strip around the middle.

    At first I was ironing the squares, then got bored and found it worked pretty well without the ironing step.
