R2-D2 pattern inspired by Ralph McQuarrie's concept illustrations

Here is a simple craft for embellishing fabric. It took 15 minutes to repeat the drawings, creating a pattern for a dish towel. Also I traced the droid drawings individually on to some linen (as well as used some thread to add texture) for some homemade lavender sachets. Simply print out my drawings of the concept art - or better yet draw your own! - gather the supplies and follow the easy instructions.

Gamorrean Guard Coin Purse

A Star Wars themed portable piggy bank!
I used leather for mine, but you can use felt instead (and skip the hole punches and start at step 3).

Death Star Plans Pillow

I needed a round pillow for my reading chair, so I decided to sew a Death Star pillow. I chose recreate the Death Star plans for its simplicity and modern look. This project is time consuming (I stitched the entire pillow by hand), but it is very simple to make. In the end I really love the result: looks great and it is super comfortable!

Droid Charms: R2-D2 & C-3PO

These are the first in a series of droid charms I hope to create. I'm a novice at bead jewelry, so these should be very simple to recreate. I just hope my instructions are clear enough. Also having needle nose pliers will help immensely!

Stormtrooper Sock Doll

I had an extra white sock (the other half of the pair was lost to an experiment gone wrong) So, as it turns out, just one stray white sock to make this storm trooper! That means if you have a pair, you can make one as a gift, and keep the other one for yourself (don't worry, I won't tell).

X-Wing Sequence Brooch

I actually made two of these - one for each shoulder (the other I flipped to reverse the image). They are sparkly and still feminine enough to wear to the live jazz club down the street.
