Title: Star Wars Applique/Embroideries
Post by: loveandasandwich on July 25, 2011 03:58:08 PM

Wasn't sure where to put these, but this seemed like the right section because there's a lot of embroidery & they were done on embroidery hoops.

Made these four Star Wars characters for an upcoming Star Wars themed show!
I'm always partial to the fuzzier creatures, so I made my favorite creatures from the films. :D




Two chewbacca pieces because I couldn't pick just one favorite chewbacca related quote!  



Ewok on the forest moon of Endor



Whimpering Wampa, right after his arm was severed by Lukes lightsaber :O


& Some progress shots!








& sketches!

For the first one... changed the design a bit once I made it.... and the quote haha


& for the other Chewbacca, plus a TaunTaun I was planning on making, but ran out of time. :C


& a final photo of them all together:

Don't they look nice together? :D  I'm pretty proud of them seeing as how I've never done anything like this before.
