Every Tusken Raider needs a trusty bantha to ride around Tatooine. These elephant-sized creatures with long ram-like horns first showed up in Star Wars. I made this cuddly bantha with some felt, buttons, pipe cleaners, stuffing (i used holey socks), and fake fur. It took about a day to make.

Yay! This is awesome!

My bf and I were watching Jedi the other night and he commented on how cute he thinks Banthas are.

I love to see people making Star Wars crafts! I made my bf a little Max Rebo ornament for Christmas.

Now he just needs a little raider with a rifle.  Socks make for a sturdy stuffing to.  Great job!  Might have to put one under the tree some year. Grin

Oh my goodness, he's adorable. Are banthas allowed to be adorable;-)? I mean, they don't exactly come across as 'cute' in the movies....but you did a great job here!
