Some will have some changes made in the future (i.e. the first couple made will look better). My sewing skills have definitely improved since I started (at least I think they have).
|Little Star Version 1 (hand sewn, was with me all the way through being awarded the grant), Version 2 (first attempt at pattern making), and Version 3 (the one that came to Space Camp that the kids tested out for me)|
Anyway, without further ado, let me introduce you to the Little Star character prototypes...
Mr. Old-Timer Orange Star
Mr. Angry Blue-White Star
Little Star/Sol (version 2)
It was a lot to come up with the patterns since I haven't really sewn for close to 10 years, but it was also a lot of fun. It was great to work out the patterns, see the characters come to life and figure out what needed to be tweaked here and there. I can't wait to make the final versions in more durable upholstery fabric!
