Step 1

Take the red leather and using your pen…

…draw a star on it.

Draw another star, bigger, on the brown leather.

Cut them out…

… like this.



Step 2

Place the red star over the brown one…

… and start sewing them.

You should sew the red star to the brown one, then continue over the edge of the brown one.

It will look like this.


Step 3

Let’s make the center decoration. Start somewhere on the center part…

… and make this snowflake. When you are finished…. make a knot on the back and cut the thread.


Step 4

Apply a layer of glue on the brooch base…

… and place it on the back of the star, over the knot.

Take a small piece of red leather and glue it over the base. Let it dry well.

That’s all! The brooch is ready.

And, there you have it.  You just finished your Leather Star Brooch.  How did your star turn out?  Let me know in the comments below.  And, don’t forget to take a picture and post that too…. I would love to see it.
