Here's a little more JOY for you. :)
I just drew a star that filled a regular sheet of copy paper, and tried to make one of the "legs" longer so it would fit in the spring better.
I traced the pattern and then wrote JOY in the middle-ish. Stitched the J and the Y. Then layered right sides out and sewed on the line, leaving an opening for stuffing the star. After I stuffed it, I sewed it shut the rest of the way. Then I grunged it, sewed the O (bell) on, and wound the berry vine around it. Ta-da!
