To raise a well-rounded geekling, you have to start teaching them the fundamentals early on. Of course your offspring is going to learn the alphabet and will be ready for differential equations by age two. But first and foremost, they must learn the demographics of Star Trek. A very organic way to break them in and expose them to Star Trek characters is with homemade visual props like these Star Trek Cross Stitch Characters.
As with all handmade crafts, there are no rules governing what you can do with the finished product. With this cross stitch pattern, you could create an eye-catching wall plaque for a nursery, cross stitch characters onto clothing or backpacks, decorate aprons… it’s totally up to you. And Star Trek is appropriate for all ages, from babies to seniors. Just think of all the handmade gifts you could make for your loved ones.
