Building a better planet, Oceans

I had the coloring book page and my replacement planet enlarged to queen-size. It’s huge!

The replacement planet measures 60 inches across. Gonna do the ocean loops today.

Because of the large scale, I won’t be able to cut the loops from a single piece of fabric. I’m using my initial technique of cutting individual shapes, using the printed knot as template/guide. I extend the ends of all pieces to lay under the paths that cross over them.
