Lovely Bubbly Star

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE...... love this pattern. Sorry if I'm obnoxious. It's just so wonderful in any color. I like to use multicolored thread, because it looked like a nice rainbow of bubbles.



Firstly, this isn't my pattern, it's from a book that's about 70 years old. I don't think it's anywhere on the internet though. It's super cute and fast, and you could make a whole bunch to do a collage in a picture frame, or a mobile (something which I normally don't like the idea of making), maybe even sew some so a shirt or jeans. SOOOO CUTEEEE... Sorry. I'm freaking out! Here's the Pattern!

See? Super easy!
You can remember that even, and make probably 10 in one lazy day.
Simple and beautiful!
Hope you like (:

  1. I DO like! The pentagon shape is quite pleasing. Have you tried laying several of these beauties out in a geometric pattern to create a doily or mat?

    Thanks for sharing the pattern. I will be making this in the weeks to come. Do dop by my tatting blog, as I have a Valentine's Day giveaway coming up!

  2. I'll definitely check out your blog (:

    And actually I was thinking of ways I could put a bunch of them together since I'm a huge fan of this pattern. The pentagon is quite a limiting shape. But I did a little math and found that 11 of them make a perfect circle, great for a frame.

    If you were to add one more point, making it into a hexagon, it wouldn't really be a star anymore, but the possibilities would immediately become endless!
