This tiny block was an experiment with making a rectangular wonky star block. Instead of beginning with squares, as in regular wonky stars, which are a super fun block to make, I began with itty bitty rectangles. They work out just the same, except you have to be careful to which side of the rectangle you add the star points. I put an adorable Japanese fabric fussy cut in the center of the rectangle. The block finishes at 1 7/8 x 2 1/4 inches.
I set my miniature block into the front of a Perfect Zip Bag (pattern by Elizabeth Hartman) via reverse applique and added some hand stitched details. The outside of the bag is black yarn dyed essex which has incredible texture and at the same time is super soft. Thanks to Rachel for sending me some! I hope I can find more somewhere soon. Love this stuff.
