Tutorial: Bleached Out Slogan tee

Ahh I love how this turned out!

I used my favourite dialogue between Princess Leia and Han Solo where she professes her love for him and he replies in a very... scruffy-lookin' nerf-herder way!

Oh man it makes me laugh every time.

Anyway, hit the jump for the tutorial!

Tutorial: Ruffled Mini

Probably the simplest of skirts, this style I whip up when I have nothing to wear or if I have stray rectangles of fabric. This particular Star Wars skirt was made from two Fat-quarters I bought on eBay. I bought them as one continuous piece of fabric but if you have them cut seperately I don't think it'd be that big a deal.

This is a really great way to use fat quarters you buy of awesome fabric but don't know what to do with them!

Tutorial: Lego Lightsaber Necklaces

I've seen these all over the place, but I couldn't be bothered trying to find a drill bit small enough to drill a hole into the hilt of a lego lightsaber so I did it my own way!

You can try bidding on them on eBay but it gets really crazy on there! Click here to buy a set of 8 on Amazon [including two glow in the dark!]

Tutorial beneath the cut!

Tutorial: Off the Shoulder T-Shirt Surgery

Smoothtrooper lovers yo mammas flap-jacks!

It's true!

When my sister and her fiance came back from Japan they told me about this hilarious shirt they saw. I looked for it on eBay and I found it! [Pretty sure if you haven't worked out by now, eBay was my BFF all throughout the preparation for this month!]

Here's what the original shirt looked like

I resized it and made it off-the shoulder. Would you like to learn how?

Yoda Hat

Heather from Dollar Store Crafts made this adorable Yoda hat! You can make it for adults or children. Here's the one I made for my Youngling!

All you need is green fleece [from the roll or from an old blanket] and some buttons! I got the blanket for $4 from the local Crazy Whatever-They-Call-Themselves-Now. I used the existing hem on it as the hem for the hat so I didn't need the extra band she uses in the tutorial.

When two years old you reach, look this cute you will not

In future Yoda hats oh yes there will be many more in my future] I would add interfacing to the ears to make them stick out a little more.

Tutorial: Jedi Minidress

Today you're going to learn how to make this dress!

Did you know that Doc Martens are Jedi Council approved footwear for every padawan?

I aimed to make a dress that was modelled after the Jedi clothing, but something that I could wear outside the house and conventions! This is NOT supposed to be an accurate costume, it's a nod to the Jedi while still looking hell yeh hot! The robe I made as a mini dressing gown to keep me warm and snuggly. I used brown fleece for comfort, but you can totally use a thin cotton poplin if it is hot where you live, or a heavier drill fabric for something more weighty.

The robe tutorial will be up later this month, so let's work on the dress first!

Ready for the tutorial?
