going on a rocketship

in the midst of a week long clean/purge/rearranging of my craft room, I just had to clear a spot to work on this guy.

Here is the lineup of how it evolved!

A few tries on the pattern and using inferior materials before committing to my beloved wool blend felt.

The final ship is left sewn on the outside. When I turned it inside out with seams on the inside, it would stretch the felt at the bottom and I couldn't get a nice point on the top. So I decided to leave it as is.
