Happy Stars Wars Day!
May the fourth be with you!
I can’t believe that I almost let this get away. But here’s a quick round-up of some fun Star Wars-inspired sewing.
How could I have gone for so long without a Millennium Falcon Neck Rest? Follow this tute and cover your buckwheat neck pillow to look like Han Solo’s ummm…trusty craft and you won’t get whiplash when you hit hyperdrive.
Again from StarWars.com, make your own cuddly Bantha to roam Tatooine. Starwars.com has several sewing crafts of character puppets that you can make for or with young sewists, including a space slug draft dodger and a Chewbacca sock puppet.
Applause to this BurdaStyle sewist for modifying and drafting her pattern for a Jedi cloak and costume.
Make your own Yoda and Darth Vader puppets for the ultimate battle of good vs. evil. If terrycloth were they made of, very useful would they be, hmmm?
There’s so much more, but I thought four would be appropriate for this special day. To find more, just search on “Star Wars sewing crafts.” In the words of Master Yoda, “Feel the Force!”
[EDITED] I couldn’t resist one more. For the quilters out there. A Star Wars quilt.
