Craft exchange can now be posted!

I can now talk about the craft exchange I made for [community profile] homemade2homemade! My randomly-assigned recipient was [personal profile] james, whose wish list included, among other things, space and NASA themes.

Below the cut are various pictures including rough draft sketch!

Pencil sketch of what I wanted it to look like, approx life size because that's way easier for me to make sure I've got it right. LOOK OUT: MATH

The space capsule is fussy-cut from a print. The NASA Mars logo was printed on inkjet-compatible fabric, because I couldn't find any NASA logo I liked, esp in Mars Orange. This pic shows the assorted pieces after sewing the base.

Completed front

Completed back! The actual finished piece has the "made by" filled in.

It's *very* hard to tell in these pix so here's a closeup: I added hotfix crystals to each side for extra sparkle, to be the stars. You can see at least 8 of them in this closeup. Most are yellow, white/clear or other pale colors, but there's a red one too.

I had a lot of fun making this and am very happy with how it turned out :)
