STARCH AND BLOCK


Your stars need to be starched and blocked. I have used white glue mixed with water to make them stiff.

Mix glue and water in equal proportions and soak your star in it. Pin it in desired shape on to a blocking board or whatever blocking device that you use, let it dry.






Attach a thread to one of the star tips and you're done! :)
