I was looking to make a Star-Wars themed present, and it occurred to me that with a bit of felt and imagination, some of the characters would look like traditional Christmas angel decorations. See?
Of course, I drew up the pattern too. I think Princess Leia is my favourite; I’m going to have to make more of these. Just print and cut out the shapes as marked, embroider (or draw) on the details, then sew (or glue) them together with a little stuffing inside. You’ll need:
- this free Star Wars ornament pattern
- felt (black and red for Darth Vader; green and beige for Yoda; brown, skin-toned, white and black for Leia)
- needle and thread (black, green, brown, white and silver used here) or fabric glue and markers if you’re not in the mood to sew
You can also use the same technique to make all sorts of cute ornaments, like this dachshund:
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa, Io Saturnalia, and Happy Isaac Newton’s Birthday!
