Yes, I noticed that I don't have any patterns up on my patterns page.  But I have decided to finally remedy that!  Please bear with me, and realize that I do not write my patterns in plain english that regular people understand.  I've tried my best to translate my clumsy shorthand into readable coherent human language, but I am sure I may have glossed over a few things.  So please feel free to contact me through the comments, or email, if you simply cannot understand something.  I will do my absolute darnedest to help you out!  And now, without further ado, get ready to make your very own adorable shooting star:

Add eyes and blush marks to one of the star sides. 

Match the sides of the star up, and use the stitch markers to hold the pieces together at each point. 

Sew pieces together, careful to sew back loops ONLY. 

Make sure to stuff the star before the hole is closed. The stuffing tool makes it easier to get the stuffing into each point. 

Cut two short pieces of yarn, and use hook to loop each through on one side of bottom of finished star.
