I want to share the process of making a "Star" Christmas toy. The toy itself is soft and safe unlike glass toys. A variety of fabrics for manufacturing allows you to make a toy in different styles and colors to your taste.
Necessary tools: scissors, needle, pencil, iron, paper clips.
For the manufacture the following materials will be needed:
- patchwork fabric of two colors;
- fabric for the base;
- 2 buttons 1-2cm;
- sintepon filler;
- cord or ribbon.
In the beginning, prepare the fabric for patchwork. To do this, cut the squares of 7x7cm. We need 9 squares of each color. In total, you need 18 segments for one toy. This means our star will have 18 rays.
Next, fold each square diagonally and again on the long side of the triangle. For convenience, I secure the double tip of the triangle with a paper clip.
I iron all the triangles. So the toy will be neater and more convenient to work with.
Now let's do the basis: cut out 2 circles with a diameter of 8cm of the fabric of any color. Cut them out and sew in any way, leaving a window for stuffing. After stitching and turning, the circle should turn out to be a circle of 7-7, 5 cm. Fill the pad and sew it up.
For convenience, you can immediately lay out the details by color. Arrange the triangles so that the single tips were on one side, and doubled ones were on the other.
Next, sew a pillow in the center a couple of times. Take the first triangle and sew its tip together with the pillow in the center.
Wrap the triangle edge of the pillow, and stitching through the pillow, sew the other tip of the triangle in the center on the other side of the pillow. Bring the needle to the first side. Try to do all stitches in the center and stitching the corners of the triangles.
On the front side, sew the next triangle. We penetrate the corner of the triangle and take the game to the center bringing to the other side. Again, wrap the pillow in a triangle overlap on the first triangle. On the reverse side, sew the other tip of the triangle and output the needle in the center of the pillow on the front side.
Thus, we add all the details in turn. Try to observe: double tips on one side, single on the other.
Sewing the last triangle will be difficult. You can sew it in overlap on the previous one, and then tuck it under the first triangle. All rays can be moved to make the rays look smoother.
Now the toy needs to sew a button to close the ends of the fabric in the center. Sew the toy through, sew the buttons on one side and on the other. When the buttons are sewn, tie a knot and cut the thread.
It remains only to thread a lace or a ribbon under the button and tie a knot. Unnecessary tail can be pushed under the triangle. We do the same on the other side. Now our toy is ready!
So you can make a lot of options for colored toys Christmas tree or interior, different sizes and purposes. The number of rays can be changed, but not less than 15. If you put a rattle inside the pillow, you get a bright rattle for the child.
I wish you inspiration and success!
