I have updated the look of this very traditional Danish Christmas ornament.
The gold star ornament hangs from a rustic piece of string threaded through an eyelet.
The star is packed in a cellophane bag.
This listing is for one star.

Ideas for using the stars:
The stars can be hung on the Christmas tree.
Hung from a branch, maybe used as a table center piece or in a hall way.
Placed one at each table setting, for a little extra to take home.
What about using them as an ornament on the lovingly wrapped presents.
Use as a stocking filler.

This is the perfect basket for a desk, by the entrance door, by the bed, anywhere you have things you would like to store in a stylish manner. The basket is woven using an old Scandinavian basket weaving technique. Traditionally the baskets were woven from birch bark. I have used paper.

After completing the basket it was painted in a lovely deep green color. Finally the basket was covered with a protective sealant adding a lovely subtle sheen to the surface, as well as making it making it very pleasant to touch.
Despite being made from paper the basket is surprisingly sturdy.

The 25 6'x 6' inch (15 x15 cm) light to medium weight cotton squares are rotary cut from recycled shirt fabric. The squares totals 1/2 yard (45 cm) of fabric and come packed in a cellophane bag. All the squares have a different plaid/homespun pattern. There are no repeats with in a package.
The squares are perfect to use for quilt making. Due to having had a life prior to me finding them, the fabric already has a lot of character. Sewn together they make a lovely quilt with that instant soft feel and look that only time can give fabric.
All the fabrics are natural fibers (no polyester or nylon), predominantly 100% cotton. I have made several quilts with shirt fabric and absolutely love the shabby chic/country look that one can achieve by using recycled fabric.

The light to medium weight fabric has been washed 'warm' and ironed 'hot'.
The fabric in the photos is an example! All packages are packed with a good selection of colours, patteren and tones. Between a number of packages, there will be some repeats.

All squares have been rotary cut to exact size.
Please note that due to the properties/weave of some of the fabrics they might not look square, when you start working with them. If you find the odd one too soft, then please iron and spray starch the square. That will solve the 'problem' :-)
