Every budding astronaut needs a spaceship!
I was looking at applique ideas for spaceships to put on training pants when I discovered this rocketship pattern. I figured a boy that loves rocketships must have his own and decided to make it over lunch while it has been too hot to do anything else productive.
The materials are denim and cotton. I made up the ribbon bit as I decided there needed to be some ‘flames’ and thought it made a nice edging. I also decided that I didn’t want to put cardboard in the wings and I didn’t have anything to protect plastic going in the wings so I just put stuffing in.
Next time I will make the bit that attaches the leg to the ship longer so that it you have more room to attach it with. Unfortunately one side of the last leg managed to slip out and I noticed after I had finished sewing the ribbon around the bottom!
