2016 Tributes - Saying Goodbye


We originally intended this to be a tribute post for George Michael and Carrie Fisher, but somehow it just didn't work out that way.

Please help us honor some of the amazing artists lost in 2016 as we celebrate their art with ours.

Patterns are in the order they were received. 

As always, fandominstitches.com patterns are fan-created
and are free for personal & not-for-profit use only.
