Do you have a lot of scraps left over from your last project? If so, why not use them to make a starburst pattern? This is a great way to use up those little pieces of fabric, and it’s a really fun and easy project. In this article, we will show you how to make this beautiful pattern using just a few simple steps. So get ready to learn some new skills and have a lot of fun!
To make a starburst pattern, you will need:
- Scraps of fabric in different colors
- Thread that matches the fabric
- A sewing machine (or needle and thread if you’re hand stitching)
- A ruler or measuring tape
Step One: Decide on the size of your starburst pattern. This will determine the size of your fabric scraps.
Step Two: Cut out several squares or rectangles in different colors, making sure that they are all the same size.
Step Three: Sew two of the squares or rectangles together, right sides facing each other. Make sure to leave a small opening so you can turn the fabric right side out.
Step Four: Clip the corners of the sewn-together fabric, making sure not to cut through the stitches. This will help make the starburst pattern more defined and crisp.
Step Five: Turn the fabric right side out and press it flat. Then topstitch along the edge, making sure to sew close to the edge.
Step Six: Sew the remaining squares or rectangles together in the same way, making sure that they are all aligned correctly.
Step Seven: Place the sewn-together fabric onto your work surface, with the right side facing up. Pin it in place.
Step Eight: Starting in the center of the fabric, sew a spiral outward, making sure to keep the stitches close together.
Step Nine: When you reach the edge of the fabric, backstitch a few times to secure the stitches. Then cut off any excess thread.
And that’s it! You’ve now created a beautiful starburst pattern using scraps of fabric. This is a great way to add a touch of personality to any project, and it’s perfect for using up those little bits and pieces that you might have lying around. So why not give it a try? We guarantee that you’ll love the results!
Happy stitching! 🙂
