I love finding free pattern downloads, and this one is especially cute with it’s little Darth Vader. Username Avozika has this design as well as a few others (including a rather pithy Chuck Norris design) for download on her Instructables page.

I has been abit lacking on posts due to being away for Christmas, but normal service is now being resumed.
Hope you have all enjoyed the holidays.
Today I have to show you a Darth Vader made by Bellino Alain who has a shop on Behance
This Darth Vader bust is made entirely from scrap metal pieces fixed together, the process of how is was assembled detailed on the site.
Bellino also has other scrap items such as skulls and cockerels. The talent displayed is simply awe-inspiring.
Using a pattern from Geek Central Station, Craftster user mutepenguin crocheted this super awesome detailed amigurumi Darth Vader for her boyfriend for Christmas. Even better, you can remove the mask and sleeve to see Anakin Skywalker’s scarred head and robotic arm! Star Wars amigurumi WIN!
This is so completely awesome I can hardly stand it. Craftster user mayamagination made this rad Darth Vader Princess costume for her five-year-old daughter. AWESOME!!! I want this for myself!
Craftster user, Kirsa, crocheted this adorable Darth Vader Amigurumi as a Christmas gift for her nephew. The coolest thing about this Darth Vader is the detail on his chest and…his helmet is removable! (Okay, so I lied, the coolest thing about him is that I got to use “adorable” and “Darth Vader” together in a sentence).
I had the opportunity to spend some time at Kansas City’s longest-running science fiction convention, ConQuesT, this weekend. I ran into my friend Annastasia Webster, of Stasia Crafts, there, and her hat bowled me over. Stasia is known on the con circuit for her stunning hats, and this Star Wars confection was no exception.
“You just need a ton of crap and some hot glue,” was her advice to me on making unique headwear, but this was far from “crap” – she’s quite clever and inventive with her supplies.
Her hat featured Yoda, Darth Vader, and R2D2 figures, as well as a light saber. She mentioned that when she went looking for action figures, they were rather pricey, so she opted to grab some kid water bottles that had similar figures on top, and handy flat bottoms that sat nicely on her hat. The light saber? It’s a bubble wand! She just scraped off the bubble label, tossed the bubble contraption, and it was perfect.
In the pic, you can also just make out her shawl, which she hand-knitted. Her talents are limitless!
