Constellations

I finally finished that batch of constellations for my sister's kids' bedroom.  She is doing a space theme for the room and asked for curtains.  I suck at curtains and I advised her that she should just do a nice navy curtain and have fun with the decorations.  So the constellations are my contribution instead.

I used a zodiac pattern set from this etsy shop.  I opted out of using a black denim fabric and went with a soft gray.  (Also, I apologize for the crap photography -- we were having a streak of cloudy weather when I took these and nothing came out right.)  
Sometimes I went a little bonkers with the extra stars:
The backs are a mess, but I didn't want to glue a backing on them in case she wants them turned into a pillow at a later date.
I'm not convinced that the pattern for this constellation put the little lines in the right place:
Of course, it could just be user error, because I totally messed this one up and didn't notice until I was just about to seal up the box:
And then I put them all in one of those wonderful boxes that I recovered with the vintage foil wrapping paper.
I know that my sister will reuse that box.  She's good like that.

  1. The Zodiac is the path the Sun and Moon take through the Constellations. There are 12 Zodiac Constellations, one for each month.executive sober living ny
