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!

I love star wars, and there are some fantastic Star Wars crafts out there on Etsy! Here are some of my favourites. Click on the picture to go to the treasury!
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.
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.
So 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.
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?
