This design is inspired by Viking labyrinths and by looking up at the Milky Way in a frozen night sky. Wander the path of the maze with your needle and thread, following the stars to the North Star at its centre. The star colours follow a simple repeating pattern – orange, yellow and magenta, creating constellations of colours across the labyrinth. Add a fourth or fifth colour to the star colours and see how they change the effect of your own motif.

The running stitches in between the stars are left out in the transfer, so that you can add different stitches if you prefer. You can draw the running stitches with a water-soluble fabric-marker pen if you like, or just stitch away.
Remember to rinse out water-soluble marks before ironing the embroidery. The ink from a water-soluble fabric-marker pen may set permanently in the fabric with the heat of the iron.
