Hi all! I made this hoop recently for my partner in the "Use What You Have" Swap.
She mentioned liking space, american and glitter themes so I combined them!



I appliqued the moon surface on with interfacing and finished with a chain stitch, and the earth was just a patch I had around. The stars are fabric paint (glitter of course). I made the flag pole with a heavy braid chain stitch, for which I used this tutorial.

Here's some detail. The flag was done in a back-stitch with shiny thread, and I used satin stitch to fill the blue, and fabric paint for the stripes.


I actually like the way this came out; I didn't think I was going to. The stars were a little sloppy, but I had a hard time getting my brain around spacing 50 stars in a tiny box.  Huh

Anyway, thanks for looking!

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

Very cool! I really like how that black fabric looks as the spacey background.
