Look at all the Stars and Constellations...

For yet another craftster swap I embroidered three constellations, Orion, Canis Major, and Draco. For those people who are on the up and up with their constellations there is a connection between the three, just not super obvious.  (Here is a clue, certain authors may have also used these constellations for inspiration..)

It was kind of fun to look up constellations and it was really easy to do.  All French Knots.. all the time...


It was actually fairly difficult to get an accurate transfer of the image because the fabric was so dark, so what I ended up doing was putting my paper image of the constellation in the hoop with the fabric and embroidering through both the paper and the fabric. It seemed to work out well, although I think some of the stars are a little bigger than they may be in real life.
