Draw your pattern.There is no right or wrong way to do it you can make it in any size :)

Step 3: Cut the Fabric

Picture of Cut the Fabric

Draw the pattern on the fabric and cut.Don't forget to leave seam allowence!
The fabric I used was very sheer so I used a thicker fabric for the lining.If you are using a thick fabric you don't have to do that.

Step 4: Zipper

Picture of Zipper

I chose to use a black zipper but white also works :) Place the zipper a bit below the fabric and sew.Then fold the fabric and sew again.Repeat this step for the other side.

Step 5: Constellation

I googled the star map and draw them on the paper then draw them on the fabic using the chalk.You don't have to draw them exactly the same.This is optional :)

Step 6: Sewing

NOTE: If you use a thicker thread.It looks better :)

First sew the main lines then sew little star shapes.Repeat it for both sides.

Step 7:

This step is optional I just didin't want the thread to show on the inside so I glued a sheer fabric over it.

Step 8: Edges

Put the right sides together and sew on the edges.Make sure that you open up the zipper.

very cool. i recently saw an interesting project very similar to this, using an infinity scarf and then sewing the constelations in. I might have to make both so they match!! I love this and will definityly have to try it.

is it ok to hand wash it?

hinagiku (author)windrasiregar2015-10-11

as you see I glued the fabric(step7) cause I'm lazy :P It's totally okay to wash it as long as you don't use glue :)

Very cool. You could use rhinestones for the stars too.
