Scandinavian Folded Fabric Star Ornament (w video tutorial)


This video is all about creating the Scandinavian Folded Fabric Star Ornament. I originally learned this in elementary school and decided it was time for a reboot and woweewow were they super fun and super easy to make. This one is definitely family fun!


These are some of the supplies that I used:

Measurements for three different sizes

  • (four) 4″ x 16″ strips
  • (four) 3.5″ x 14″ strips
  • (four) 3″ x 12″ strips

    Oh my word, what a delight!! I am of Danish heritage, these are perfect to introduce to my grand children. I am beginning a foundation pieced Christmas Tree wall hanging and wanted something special to decorate it….. These are perfect! Thanks so much for the explicit directions.
    Wonderful Tutorial!

    […] I found this video for making fabric stars. I have made this type of star many times in the past with paper and always have liked how they finish. When I’ve attempted them with fabric–not so much. The fellow who leads you through the process in the video seems to have worked out some of the trouble spots I have had in the past. I’m planning to give his method a try. Maybe you’ll like it too. Here’s the link. […]

    Love it, but would be better with a written with pics version to this as well. Plus cuuting the strips at a angle would help with this process

    1. Mathew Boudreaux

      That sounds great. Please link to your tutorial when you do that. Much appreciated.

    I watched this video just a few weeks ago and now the video is unavailable. I says it is Private. Is there a chance it will be put back anytime soon?

    1. Mathew Boudreaux

      My YouTube has been hacked, stolen and deleted. Hopefully YouTube will be able to fix it. Sorry for the inconvenience

      1. Mathew Boudreaux

        Oh No! I was wondering what was wrong when I tried to access it today during the big annual sale at Quilted Strait to see what we needed for daughter to make for gifts this holiday.

        Hoping all is well otherwise for you and your amazing talent returns to youtube soon.

        Yikes! I watch this video a week ago, went and bought fabric, came back last night to rewatch as I began your wonderful project and now I can’t find you on YouTube. Now I know why 🙁 fingers crossed my memory will kick in so I can finish my ornament for an ornament exchange. I hope they figure your channel out and get you back up and running. You are so delightful and bring smiles to your subscribers.

    I watched your video last week and now follow your blog and on FB. Today and yesterday, when I click on your YouTube videos, they say they are private.

    1. Mathew Boudreaux

      My youtube has been hacked, stolen and is now being used for bad stuff. Not sure if I’ll get it back or not. Feel free to contact YouTube to let them know you’d like my channel up.

    After seeing you rave about Terial Magic and Fabric Fuse, I decided to order both to check them out. Can’t wait to make some of these ornaments!

    The magic can not be found is there something else you can use to stabilize the material thanks

    Are there written instructions for the Scandinavian Folded Fabric Star Ornament, or just the video?

    Thank you.
