Step 8: Engines

Cut a mostly triangle piece of black fleece. it should be about 6" at the base and about 4" high, with about 2" flat at the top. This will be  for the engines.

For the three Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne RS-25 liquid fueled cryogenic rockets, take a round thing and and cut three little round pieces of black fleece from it.  It's okay if they're not perfectly round, you can trim them up later.

Note: In retrospect, these would've probably looked better using a slightly different color, like dark grey, if you also have some extra grey scraps laying around after making a fleece Skyrim helm...

Sew them onto the triangle as shown, then you can trim around the circles to clean it up.

Sew the engine triangle onto the engine ledge. Be sure to have the seam on the inside of the shuttle, and the rockets on the outside!
Nice job! Thanks for sharing your hard work and do have a splendorous day! <br>sunshiine
This is so cute! I could see this used in a lesson in a school as well, using liquid stich to put it goether. Note as lovely as sewing, but classroom friendly. Great 'able!
Thanks! :-) I've never used liquid stitch, I'll have to check that out. It sounds like it would be great for putting on decals, too, you wouldn't have to worry so much about aligning them before putting together the major pieces.
It completely would! You will find it in any sewing section. Very handy.
<strong>Post Note</strong>: You could probably use 1/4&quot; upholstery foam instead, I think it's essentially the same thing, and it'd probably be a bit cheaper (depending on where you get it). I just happened to have most of an unused air conditioner filter lying around.
