I've been working on some balsam pillows, needle-felting designs on wool, and was looking for a way to make a pattern of a perfect 5-pointed star. So I googled "5 pointed star." The very first site listed was titled "5 Pointed Star in One Snip" and it worked! Apparently -- this was how Betsy Ross made all those stars for her flag. . . Thank you, Betsy! And thank you ushistory.org!
Here's the pillow top, not yet sewn to its bottom. What do you think?
