ISS037-E-002783 (22 Sept. 2013) --- NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg, Expedition 37 flight engineer, made this stuffed dinosaur toy aboard the International Space Station, using scraps of food-packaging liners and a T-shirt. She sent images of it to her young son on Sept. 22. Many of the astronaut’s hobbies lean toward artistic pursuits. She has let it be known that she loves to create different things through quilting, sewing and sketching. Nyberg took four “fat quarters” (pieces of fabric that are 18 by 22 inches) with her to the International Space Station along with needles, thread and a sketchbook when she launched to space on May 28.
