It's such a simple idea, and definitely makes me think that I should try tracing something myself and winging it with some embroidery. However, I do like a pattern to follow that takes some of the thinking out of the project and allows me to concentrate on the making. The patterns for these were about £4.50 each - there are of these 4 girls in the set and I've made 2 so far, but am delighted that my daughter likes them so much as she wants the other 2 as well.
Galaxy Girl. I bought colour variegated thread and also metallic threads for it.
I'm pleased with how it turned out, though I didn't really enjoy sewing with the metallic thread. As it's 100% polyester instead of cotton, it was quite splitty and not soft.
In general I'm much more of a practical crafter, but I enjoyed making these so much that I'm really looking forward to making the next two. After that, I will have to explore different ways to keep doing embroidery, but integrating it into things like clothing or things for the house - I have an idea about embroidering fabric for a lampshade that may or may not happen.
