Jawa Chupa Chup cover

Jawa chupa chupa cover

My eldest boy recently had a Star Wars birthday party. I was inspired by this pin, to sew some little cloaks for some lollipops, to make Jawa favors. I took notes and photos as I went, so I figured I may as well share the tutorial on my blog.

Of course, if you aren’t sewing inclined, but can’t do without these, the original pin I was inspired by points to a store, so you can buy some too!

    Star Wars Pillow and Blanket

    Star Wars pillow and blanket

    In just a year, I’m going to be finished with college. Soon, I’ll have to decide what to do with the rest of my life! Every time I see a baby in a pram or stroller, I squee with delight, so little geeky addition sounds just lovely. Young children are a great inspiration for crafts. I honestly can’t wait to turn our study into a Nintendo-themed bedroom and start finger-painting Pokémon with the little ones.

    Chewbacca Domo

    Chewbacca Domo

    I think Chewbacca is one of the most misunderstood characters on Star Wars – probably because very few speak Wookie. Fortunately the pattern for this Chewbacca Domo appears very easy to understand, so with just a few snips and stitches you can have one for your very own. He even includes a video tutorial!

    How cute would this look on your bed? I think it would make a great addition to a dorm room or geek den, too.

    Star Wars Boba Fett Lamp

    boba-lampSo you’ve got your R2-D2 bra all made, but you’re still needing to make something else Star Wars related…what to make, what to make? If you’re feeling  like a simple craft and you’ve got a few things to upcycle, then the Boba Fett lamp might be right up your alley.

    Major League Mods has posted a fairly simple tutorial over at Instructables on how to take a simple lamp base and a Boba Fett helmet and turn them into a new lamp. The nice thing about this tutorial, that while it uses a Boba Fett helmet, you could use any toy helmet: Darth Vader, any kind of trooper, maybe even an Iron Man helmet.

    GeekCrafts Submission: Harry Potter Sharpie Mug

    DIY Sharpie-decorated mugs

    We received this as a submission, and what a cute project! I had no idea you could decorate ceramic coffee mugs with regular Sharpies! I love how bright the colors turned out and the adorable little Harry Potter face (complete with mini Gryffindor scarf collar!).

    What would you draw on your coffee mug? A Star Trek insignia? The Star Wars Rebel Alliance logo? A couple of Portals?
