Stars and Christmas – or how I learned to sew y-seams

The first Christmas presents are in the making 🙂 Since the two, to whom these stars are going are not "online" I am very confident that they will not know beforehand and I can post this. These are two tops for center pieces with which I tackled my fear of y-seams!

I got the tip from my local dealer to mark the corners in the distance of the seam allowance and to only sew up to those marks.higru_rauteAnd with this little trick, the next step is amazingly easy! Just fold along the extended seam line and piece the two diamonds together.

I was so amazed, that y-seams can be so easy, that I had to do a second one right away - and I can imagine there'll be more to come in the near future 🙂
