Progress Report - Space Stitching - part 4

I have some progress to report on my space stitching project.  --If you would like to review my progress so far, you can check out these posts: {part one}  {part two}  {part three}. --  I am going to be making a pillow.  For one side of the pillow I am using this rocket picture that I embroidered.  For the other side of the pillow, I have decided to stitch this little spaceman:

I wanted to add this shooting star to the spaceman picture, so I just cut it out and taped it in place before I started transferring this to my fabric:

I transferred the pattern using a water soluble marker.  It is very easy to see the pattern through this white fabric!

I think it really helps to keep another copy of the pattern to refer to while I am transferring.

There - all transferred!

Now to put it into the hoop - I am using my big 10" hoop:

Now my next step is going to be selecting floss colors.  I am so enjoying my new organized lifestyle!  I am recording all the pertinent information for this new project:

And since I did the same for the rocket stitching, I can see which colors I used so that I will be able to use the same on the spaceman:

Remember this border?  I have figured out the perfect use for it on this pillow - I will be posting about that soon!

Awesome! Can't wait to see the spaceman all stitched. I also can't wait to see what you do with the moon and stars border.
