Believe it or not I have never seen Star Wars! I know that is unusual amongst people of my generation but then I think in many ways I am unusual. I grew up without a TV for a start...
Anyway, a friend of mine has some nephews who really love Star Wars and they have been living in another country with their family this year because of their Mum's job. The whole family is coming home this weekend and so my friend asked me to make a couple of Star Wars amigurumi characters to give to her nephews as welcome home presents.
I'm quite pleased with how Yoda turned out - I didn't have a pattern to follow, I just looked at some pictures of him and made it up. His coat was the hardest thing to make - but I did it, hood and all!
I have been making and designing amigurumi since March 2009. This is the place where I share my creations and various bits of my life! If you are interested in buying any of my amigurumi or if you want to ask for a custom request feel free to check out my etsy shop below.
