Fly me to the moon...

Moon Landing Pun...Let me play among the stars…

Here at the Crafty fox, we’re obsessed with all things astronomical this month.  ‘Why?’ I hear you ask...well, on the 20th July 1969, humans first walked on the moon, and we thought we’d celebrate this great achievement by bringing you some space crafts (pun definitely intended).

So, below we are on our final countdown of top space-related ideas for you to try. And to keep you on course, why not sing along with our Space Age playlist while you craft?

Rocket Cushion

3…We love this out-of-this-world rocket applique cushion from Fabricworm. It’s sure to be a great addition to any young aspiring astronaut’s bedroom!

Whether you have a mini Neil Armstrong or Sally Ride, they’re bound to love this cute cushion

If you are feeling adventurous, perhaps try running up a matching pillowcase and quilt cover set, or go for a rocket covered headboard.

If you are short on suitable fabric in your stash, we have that covered with this colourful cotton fabric in store.

2...We also discovered this cool crochet solar system project from Instructables. Suitable for all levels of crocheters, from beginners to experts.

Once made, we think it would be a great tool for teaching kids about our solar system, or if you don’t have a budding astronaut just yet, why not inspire a love of space by hanging the planets from an embroidery hoop and creating your very own space mobile?

1...Last but not least, check out this amazing button moon collage from Adventure-in-a-box. Not only is it easy, but you can also use this technique with virtually any template! When framed and put on a black background it will make a wonderfully stylish addition to any room in the house.

LIFT OFF!...Launch yourself into one of our suggestions, or perhaps you have an idea of your own you would like to share?
