May The Force Be With You

For our tenth wedding anniversary back in October, I crocheted a Yoda for Steve. He loved it and took it to work to put on his desk. Over the last few months the little guy has stood there beside his computer attracting quite the much so that I was asked to crochet a Yoda, and several other Star Wars characters, for one of Steve's coworkers.

Like it was with the dolphins, I was thrilled to have my work recognized and have someone request a crochet item from me, so I eagerly accepted the job. And then I learned that this coworker wanted these little figures for Christmas. Yikes! Needless to say I have been working on these guys every chance I have had for the last few weeks. And yes, I have callouses on my fingers and thumbs.

But they are done now, and they look incredible!! I am so happy with them. I am definitely going to make them for our household as well.

The pattern I used is from here - an amazing source for fun, funky, pop-culture inspired amigurumi patterns.

Here are the characters that I made:

Darth Vader
Princess Leia
An Ewok
And here is the whole gang all together
I used both Bernat Handicrafter Cotton and Lily Cotton - all from my stash - for this project.

What do you think? I absolutely love them!

May the force be with you!


  1. I LOVE them too!! So talented. That Ewok is ADORABLE as is Yoda!

    1. Thanks Leslie. I love them too - I almost didn't want to give them away.

  2. These are amazing and thanks for posting on our last Brag About IT Party. With the crazy holiday distractions going on we just made it over to tell you how much we love these. Not sure we could have parted with them either. Looks like the force is strong with you. :) Best wishes ~ Sharon and Denise
