Fabric Preparation:

  1. Cut the Yellow fabric in half lengthwise (two pieces 22" X 27"). Set aside one of these pieces to be used later for the back of the Moon.
  2. Spray starch the remaining fabrics to add body for embellishments.
  3. With the water-soluble marketing pen, draw lines at a 45∞ angle 1" apart across the width of the yellow fabric. Repeat this, drawing lines across the length of the fabric. (See figure below). This forms the grid pattern for the pintucks.
  4. Place the Pintuck Foot on the machine and attach Pintuck Cord Guide A.
  5. Select a straight stitch. The project was sewn with the Triple Stretch Stitch.
  6. Tighten the needle tension to 7. Pass the #5 Perle Cotton through the Pintuck Cord Guide and under the foot.
  7. Sew corded pintucks on the marked lines across the width of the fabric. Repeat sewing the corded pintucks across the length of the fabric.
  8. cut out one moon from the pintucked fabric and cut the back of the moon out of the yellow fabric set aside earlier. Replace the ribbon case cover plate and attach the F Foot.

Making The Stars:

The stars in the project were decorated as follows (but you can embellish them any way you like).

Blue Star:

  1. Place a piece of craft fleece on the wrong side of the fabric.
  2. Select stitch #85 (Memory Craft 9000), #84 (Memory Craft 8000).
  3. Scatter stars in a random pattern across the fabric. Cut out a front and back from the largest star pattern.

Lavender Star:

  1. Wind a bobbin with Dark Lavender MaderiaÆ Dècor 6. Place the bobbin in the bobbin case but do not place the thread into the tension slot.
  2. Thread the needle with matching embroidery thread. Select the zig-zag stitch. Set the width at 1.5 and the length at 3.5. Sew from the wrong side, in a grid pattern. Our example was sewn in a random fashion, but you can draw lines for a guide if you like.
  3. Cut out a front and back from the medium star pattern.

Green Star:

  1. With the water-soluble marking pen, trace the small star pattern on the right side of the fabric. Draw a line from each point to the opposite corner.
  2. Place a piece of craft fleece on the wrong side of the fabric.
  3. Select the Saddle Stitch and with matching embroidery thread stitch on the lines.
  4. Cut out a front and back from the small star pattern.

Sewing The Moon and Stars Together:

  1. Attach the 1/4" Foot and sew the Moon and Star front and backs together, leaving an opening as indicated on the patter.
  2. Clip the curves on the Moon and the corners of the Stars.
  3. Turn and stuff with fiberfill. Whip stitch the openings closed.
  4. Sew a small ring to the back of the moon for a hanger. Hand-stitch or use a hot glue gun to attach the blue and lavender stars to the Moon. Attach the small star with the ribbon to the top of the moon as shown in the sample. Now go hang your moon and stars in the sky.
