Wonders of Space - Astronomy cross stitch pattern
This listing is to purchase the Wonders of Space cross stitch pattern. This was previously released as a stitchalong, and the full pattern is now available. Each section contains a beautiful image from astronomy, so that you can build up your own cross stitched corner of the universe. The pattern also has several pages of descriptions of all the images so you can understand what you’re stitching – no previous knowledge required!
There are three different choices – Option 1, Option 2, or Options 1 and 2. Please look at the pictures to decide which you’d like. Option 1 has “fuzzy edges” and the main text. Option 2 has straight edges (and so more suitable for also using the images individually as cards or coasters etc), no main text and the names of the space features underneath.
