Folded Star Guide Stencil User Manual👈👈👈

The Folded Star Guide tool creates a measurement method to place the fabric an equal distance from each other and from the center of the star. You can use this set to make folded star potholders, folded star pillows, folded star quilts, etc...  YOU CAN USE IT FOR YOUR DIVERSE PROJECTS! 
The stencil can be used for any pattern using an 8-pt star with 90 and 45-degree alignment. The stencil also makes an Easy Star block with the use of prairie points, in 5 different sizes. The stencil features 22.5-degree marks for varying placement of fabric as well.
Here is what you need~
Plum Easy Folded Star Pattern and Template (the patterns come with 1 template, and you can also get packs of 3 templates)
1 small square
4 small dark-colored squares turned into prairie points
8 large light-colored squares turned into prairie points
8 large dark-colored squares turned into prairie points
8 large light-colored squares turned into prairie points
glue stick
rotary cutter and ruler
steam iron(for making the prairie points)
To make the prairie points fold it in half once, wrong sides together, and press. Then fold the two corners to the middle and press it with steam so it stays in place.
Add a little glue to the wrong side of the small square and place it in the middle square section of the pattern.
Add a little glue to the backside corner of the small prairie point.
Set in place in between the 45% angle lines (you can move and adjust if you need).
Continue with the 3 other small prairie points by adding glue to the backside corners and then set in place.
Now for layer number 2.  Add some glue on the backside of one of your light large prairie points.
Place the first one on the layer 2 line on the 45-degree angle line.
Add some glue to the second prairie point and place it on the layer 2 line and the 90-degree angle line.
Continue adding glue to the corners of your prairie points and place them around the circle as pictured above.
For layer number 3, start in the same place as you did with layer number 2 and continue going around the circle adding all the prairie points.
Add layer number 4 the same way you added layer numbers 2 and 3.
After you have all the layers in place take it over to the machine and topstitch by stitching in the ditch.
Topstitch each section of your 8 points.
Use 4 scrap triangles larger than the corners and stitch right sides together. Then iron seams to one side as it is really thick.
Trim up your block with your rotary cutter and ruler and then you are all done! You can now make that into a potholder or keep going and make a pillow. :)
