How to Assemble the Plush Star
You will need 6 diamonds to make the front of the star and 6 to make the back. Arrange the diamonds in a star shape.
Begin sewing the diamonds together at the sides.
Repeat until all the sides have been sewn together. Sew together any small opening in the center of the star.
Repeat these steps to make the back of the star.
Hold the front and the back of the star together and sew the seam around, leaving a small opening so you can add stuffing.
Stuff the star with poly fill and sew the seam closed. Weave in ends.
