Always be mindful of commas in the pattern!

Finishing & Assembly

Embroider a message on the rocket body where the window will be attached.  Sew window to rocket body.  Sew window lock to rocket body adjacent to window.  Sew flippers to rocket body. Check down below how to attach hangings!

 

Connecting all the pieces via chain:

Push your hook beneath a stitch as pictured above. Pull your yarn through, and begin to chain. You may make this as long as you desire, but a good reference is to chain 40!

Once you have your chain long enough, pull through a stitch on the other end of the rocket and make a slip stitch. Done! Roll the rocket over and use this same technique when attaching the star, mars, and the moon.

For the star, ch 7.

For Mars and the moon, ch 17.
