The Death Star: A Free Embroidery Pattern

We like to foster curiosity at our home, so when your kid wants to know how they built the Death Star…you go to the internet to find out. I cannot remember the details of how, because honestly I was thinking, “it’s a fake!…no one actually built the Death Star!” (unless you count with imagination and computer graphics.)
