Sarah Williams wrote a lovely poem called The Old Astronomer to His Pupil in the early 1900's and this lovely embroidery brings to life the last few lines.

The embroidery is done by hand with natural colored linen embroidery floss onto cotton navy fabric. The stars are a mix of stitches and vintage mother of pearl buttons.

These are adorable! I placed a last minute order and they still arrived right on time! I bought 20 for my son's superhero party and they were a huge hit. We used quick drying glue and the boys and girls were wearing their personalized capes in no time! I did a lot of shopping around for capes, and these were by far the best price and quality. Very highly recommended by my five year old, his friends and I!

The stitching was everything we wanted and more! Very clean and easy to read. Aimee was great with communication and understanding everything we wanted. Can't wait to wear these on our big day!

Beautiful handmade art! Arrived on time and in perfect condition. I gave it as a gift to a teenage girl who loves it and has given it a place of honor on her bedroom wall. I would definitely order from daisyeyeshandmade again.
