Clear enough?

A Sunday evening adventure started with this.

Well, actually it started on Saturday when I was browsing through the thrift store and spotted two off-cuts of IKEA panel curtains.

What to do, what to do with them. Hm, well, a fellow guild member of mine had made some cute woven fabric stars; I wonder how this material will weave out.

Some chop, chop, chop, and glue, glue, glue later and I got this.

My white glue says it dries clear. Right, I indeed hope so. Glue everywhere. What is the deal with glue and me, we are certainly not always on friendly terms?

It still looks quite fab, I’d say

even with glue everywhere

and when the sun shines through it, it’s clear enough.

Don’t you think?

You’ll find several tutorials for the woven star at House Revivals here; next time I’ll use a glue-proof material.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wow thats awesome.
    Takk for veiledning.

  2. I agree! I love it. Maybe use glitter glue, and that'll look like you meant for it to be everywhere.

  3. Wow, this is interesting and beautiful! I wonder was it difficult to keep all the stripes on their place till glued. Thank you for the link! x Teje

  4. Wonderful star! Perfect for the holidays!

  5. Perfect, clear and finshed!!
    Wonderful idea. :-)

  6. Thank you for the link. I checked it out and these stars look wonderful in paper .... and fabric. I have pulled some thicker fabric and plan to make one later today.

  7. It's more than just fab Nina Lise! What a great find in the thrift store too - I love Ikea (like everyone else - lol)
