I made these last summer, but neglected to post them on here. But I should have...I got my inspiration from a Craftster post with an awesome Star Wars embroidered quilt! These were an apartment-warming present for my boyfriend, who is a huge Star Wars nut.  Roll Eyes

Yoda, finished. The two pillows are each 18"x18".

Close up, this is. It was based off of coloring book images that I found online. Add a little white transfer paper, some black cotton, and I went to town. I was really surprised by how quickly they went: Yoda took me an afternoon and an evening, and Darth even less.

Backing fabric was from JoAnn's.

And here's Darth. At the time I took the pictures, he was still in progress. The orange fabric was what I used for the mitered background of the second pillow.

What better present for my Jedi knight?  Grin
