This is a little Star Wars themed piece I stitched up a few years ago for Pittsburgh's annual Art All Night show. It's stitched on some sort of vintage hanky or doily.

This is amazing. My husband is a huge SW fan and our friend is Catholic so together they would get the biggest kick out of this. Thank you for sharing!
