Make your own star with Fabriflair!

We shared a booth with another Kansas City company, Indygo Junction at Quilt Market. Indygo Junction was founded by Amy Barickman and she recently developed a new brand for her pattern company, Fabriflair.  We fell in love with Fabriflair and coordinated efforts with Amy to showcase Paintbrush Studios fabric in Fabriflair projects for the show. 

With Christmas around the corner, it seems like the right time to share their stars and ornaments. Initially Indygo Junction introduced six kits with mat board templates to cover and hand stitch and most recently a sew by machine method was introduced featuring Fabriflair Stabilizer.

Fabriflair Patterns are dimensional fabric projects based off English Paper Piecing. 
The Fabriflair Stabilizer is used in all of our Fabriflair patterns and allows for machine stitching. This also makes it easy to decorate stars with beads, sequins, buttons, and notions for extra dazzle on the tree!  Amy shares information about the stabilizer in this video.

What a fabulous tree topper! 
Make tree toppers & ornaments for friends & family. Endless options - hang as a group or individually, or add a star to a wreath for an accent of color & pattern.  Stitch by hand or use our machine stitch technique for a fast & easy finish....

There are three sizes in the Tree Topper and Ornament Pattern for big and small trees alike; its also perfect for adding flair to wreaths.

Add new ornament to your tree! The pattern for this ornament is available for free inside the Fabriflair Stabilizer 6 Pack. Choose your fabrics and add beads!
