Star Stuffie "Twinkle Star" Free Crochet Pattern

My Husband has been telling my daughter bedtime stories with a Twinkle Star and Rainbow Pony. So my daughter has been bugging me to make Twinkle Star. I decided to quit putting it off and make it. I have just been sooooooo busy lately. I plan on making her an Orange one for Yule. (her favorite color is Orange) Well here it is in all the Twinkle glory. I might put a face on it later if she wants one. I was thinking of the Mario Star the whole time haha I wonder if she would let me put eyes on it...Anyways, I might not be posting as frequently because I have to make a ton of stuff for Yule and can't post it until after the recipients have received their gifts but there will be a ton of stuff posted after the holidays.

When Star is complete make another one and whip stitch the two pieces together. Stop when you have a hole that is a couple inches. Stuff and then sew up the hole.

Hey April, I just finished my very own star stuffie, thanks so much for the pattern, my daughter just loves it. I posted a link on my blog to your blog, hope that's okay, thanks again!

MommaJsCrochet said...

Thanks for sharing this pattern! I was looking for a star pattern to make for the top of our Christmas Tree and this is perfect!

AprilDraven said...

Awesome! I was thinking about doing the same thing :)

Sara said...

Hi April, I left you a message on Raverly as well. I was in need of a star pattern for a project I will be posting at in Jan. Yours was perfect except it was twice the size I needed. Would you mind if I post the changes I made to the pattern with a link back here for the original? You can email me if you would like at Thanks!

Love the star! And your daughter looks just like what I imagine my one year old granddaughter is going to look like in a few years! Same color hair! Same impish personality! :)

Have Fun! :)

Kelly the Tangled Grrl said...

Jacey Stitches said...

I'm excited for this pattern! My sis-in-law has asked me to make a Wish Star from Carebears for her niece, and this will be just perfect! Thank you :)

Unknown said...

Thank you for your sharing the pattern.
It's so lovely star.
i am making it to my senior :D

Unknown said...

The star is great! I do have a question though. At the end of each round, do we have to slip stitch before starting the new round? Thanks again, from Greece!

AprilDraven said...

Ioanna Valinou: No, do not ss before beginning a new round. You are working in a continuous round, if you do a ss at the beginning it would create a seam.

Unknown said...

This is so cute! i must try this when i finish my next project. Might as well make 6 colors for each of the colors of the rainbow lol

Unknown said...

Can you tell me how to make this into a quilt?

Jennylong said...

Hiya, How would I make this smaller? Plz

Luara said...

Hi Jennylong (and Sara), simply using a thiner yarn can be a solution!
I don't know the commercial yarns available in your country, or their sizes, or even how to tell a yarn's size (or needles for that matter, as the ones I inherited from my grandma seems to follow a senseless numbering).

So I picked the pretty light blue yarn I had here (I think this one is usually used for making light clothes), and started doing this star. It came out at 8cm tall, which is less than half the size April said it would be.

Loved it! :D
I think it could be used to hang on a christmas tree (if you don't mind having smaller stars besides the one on top), and I have seen bigger keyring-things than this, so it probably could do too!
Or simply hanging anywhere in the house ^^

Thank's, April!

Hi April I made a link to Your wonderful pattern in my blog here:

I loved Your pattern and it inspired my Mario Star Christmas project :) Thank You!

Poornima said...

Thanks for the pattern. I want to make a bigger version of this....maybe like a star cushion.can you pls tell how to go about to increase the size.

Krawka said...

The easiest way would be to use much bigger hook ( like 6 mm) and appropriate yarn for this hook, this way the pattern could stay the same. Let me know if you will try it and how it's going :)
