Two stitches were used for the star itself: the satin stitch and the stem stitch. The ornament was embellished with the chain stitch. A tutorial for the three stitches can be found on my web site.

The embroidery measures 10.5 cm x 10.5 cm / 4 1/8” x 4 1/8”. The pattern is available in my Craftsy Pattern Store (US$1.00; CA$1.29 these days).

Christmas Star – pattern for mug rug and coaster

This is my newest pattern—Christmas Star. Three superposed ten-point stars. I have used wool for the stars and the binding, which gives a warm and cosy feeling to these mug rugs and coasters.

Christmas Star can be stitched either by hand or with a sewing machine. Patterns in real size are included, as well as schemas with measurements in real size and many pictures. The difficulty level is “advanced” because there are no step-by-step instructions for sewing the appliques, quilting and binding. But it’s only a matter of stitching the appliqués into place. Pretty easy in the end.

The mug rug measures 15 x 23 cm / 5 7/8″ x 9″. The coaster measures 13 cm / 5 1/8″ square. The pattern is available in my Craftsy Pattern Store (US$2.00; CA$2.54 these days).
