I am a Trekkie.
I've seen all the Star Trek series and all the movies, many times each. I own the entire Voyager series on DVD. It is something that both my husband and I enjoy watching, so when I saw this pattern for a Star Trek uniform shirt, I just had to make one.
If you ever watched Star Trek The Next Generation, you'll recognize this as Captain Picard's shirt. The pattern is paper pieced and was a free download from fandominstitches at this link. The whole thing measures just 10 inches square.
I added the details of a tiny red zig zag stitch for the piping on the collar,
and 4 miniscule beads for the Captain's pips. What fun!
For the back, I used a long-hoarded piece of Star Trek fabric that I just knew would come in handy someday.
As an added bonus, I used insulated batting so it can be used as a trivet for a hot plate.
There is only one possible way to end this post...Make It Sew!
