I admit that I have long been a fan of the science fiction genre, but never really ventured into the realm of Star Trek. But, since I enjoyed the Abrams version so much, I broke down and watched classic Trek (which I have also come to love). Thus, I was inspired to make this.

I've never really embroidered before, so I just kind of used whatever stitch I felt looked right. The rest of the pouch was machine sewn.

Vulcan high five!

The back. (It says "Mr. Spock!" in Japanese. For some reason while I was sewing the front, I kept thinking of Hiro in Heroes who said that a couple of times. I guess my mind made the connection because of Quinto as new Spock. Oh well, it made sense in my mind).

The inside lining.

Thanks for looking!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Really nice job...my late brother was one of the original 'Trekkies' and would have loved it!

What a nifty pouch!

I follow you on your Trek/Heroes logic, and it works well for the design. Smiley
