crochet:: may the force be with you

Dark side, dark schmide.

Making Star Wars stuff is cool.

I’ve made the DeathStar before, so I won’t bore you with the details.  But the R2D2 hat was awesome fun to make.  I googled it & I found several free patterns, several paid patterns, and more movie shot images than you would believe for a make-believe robot.  In the end, I made it up as I went along with bits and pieces of ideas from all over and I love the outcome.  Photos don’t do it justice.  I will look so freakin adorable on my friend’s little boy!

I’m the first to say I love amigurumi stuff.

I am also the first to say I will not make the AT-AT toy again.

Nearly 10 hours to finish that little guy.  Great pattern ~ but not fun.

I need fun patterns in my life, it kind of makes the world go ’round for me.

So to recap, if you are into geekery crochet…

DeathStar = good

R2D2 hats = AWESOMENESS

AT-AT toys = may the force be with you cos you’re gonna need it 😉

Happy hooking!

  1. Hi Lisa. Oh my gosh your Star War things are amazeballs, just like you my friend. I’m glad to see you back blogging again; I was worried about you. Love and Hugs, Tamara
