december star chart embroidery

december star embroidery 001

This was part of the gift package my sister received for Christmas this year. Using the custom dyed fabric I mapped out a fairly accurate star chart for the month of December (minus a few stars of course). You can see the North star as the great big one, and Ursa Minor attached to it, a.k.a. her clothing label. (p.s. be sure to check out her brand new website!!)

I've seen this idea floating around from a few clever people and I thought it was a challenge I would like to make by myself (small star stitches? I can handle that). I liked the final result so much, I think I'll make a few for my own walls.
