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 love our twitter followers. Ageekmom retweeted a link to this amazing website from her twitter-buddy, geekygirlau, and I was totally amazed by what I found. The picture above is a paper model of a Challenger STS-51L by Tomys from Prague, Czech Republic. You read that right, PAPER. This amazing website is full of incredibly detailed,incredibly realistic scale models made from paper. I can’t even begin to tell you how cool I think these AXM Paper Space Scale Models are.
I’m loving this new Mistle-TIE Fighter holiday craft project from Bonnie Burton — awesome!
And this embroidered Darth Vader ornament from blackrose1151 on Etsy is one of my favorite things ever. I ordered two of them last year — one for me, and one for my nephew who loves Star Wars as much as I do — and mine is on my tree right now! Maybe I’ll get each of us another one of her other Star Wars ornaments this year to keep up our tradition…
So I’ll just come out and say it, as far as Star Wars goes, ewoks are my favorite. Normally, I like the tough heroic types, or the super villains, but in Star Wars, I love ewoks. So when I was cruising the Star Wars Blog and saw this adorable Wicket the Ewok Amigurumi made by Angry Angel on craftster, I was smitten. The even more adorable part? She crocheted this cute little guy for her own cute little guy, and you can recreate it with her patterns!
