Star Wars Amigurumi: the Jedi Get Stuffed
April 4th, 2008
Who says that Star Wars has to be all about manly things like lightsabers, Death Stars and Darth Vader? Why can’t it be about butterflies, puppies and playing with dolls?
Crafter Sammi Resendes of Geek Central Station sure thinks that the classic sci-fi epic can be just as sweet as a roomful of cuddly kittens rolled in confectioners sugar. These handmade Amigurumi residents of the Star Wars universe are so cute they make me want to puke (it’s almost like that time a koala bear crapped a rainbow in my brain).
The collection of pint-sized crocheted figures include Admiral Ackbar, Leia, Chewbacca, Han Solo and Yoda, all created in stuffed form. They’re accompanied by tiny little weapons and other accessories made out of Sculpey clay.
Up next in her Star Wars series, she plans on making cute and cuddly versions of Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader and R2D2. You can check out more pictures over on Flickr.
