Stargazer Gazing

This guy is just blown away by how startlingly gorgeous that star is!  Wow!

The last time I published Stargazer's picture, he didn't yet have an outfit.  I fussed around with several ideas but in the end couldn't bring myself to cover up a lot of his coat that I had felted so carefully.  So he just has this little stargazing cape which I made from a piece of felted lambswool sweater.  After making the sweater, I dressed it up a bit with some embroidery.  Then the last step was to add the closure - a button I made from a vintage glass star cabochon.  I added a tassle to it to make it reminscent of a shooting star.
