Wool Skirts & a Special Star

Hope you all are having a good day!
I thought I'd share with you the way I store my felt and wool fabric.
First of all I got some wool fabric by first washing and cutting up some wool skirts that someone gave me.  They did not fit, and I thought they would be more of a profit to me if I used them for my crafts.
I cut them into the largest sections I could
and rolled them up and placed them into a cheese box.
They are actually stored in the in the middle box.
Since they did not sell at my sale,
I have put the cheese boxes to good use--holding my fabric scraps :)
Now before you leave,
I would like to share with you a project I did using a rusty tin star as my pattern.
I took some felt and using this rusty star I cut about a quarter of an inch all the way around the star.
and layered
it on three different colors.
I took the final star layer and used it as a pattern to for the star backing.
I nailed holes in the star and sewed it to the first layer.
I then blanket stitched all of the layers--one by one.
I hung it using some craft wire.
and sent it off to my hubby's aunt who had a star tree this year for Christmas.
This star was a little special to me because of who I was making it for.
As I made it, I prayed for a comfort only God could give to Aunt Sandy and her family
 as she lost her son who served our country well!
For Jimmy's remembrance.
