"You fly that thing? You're braver than I thought."
--Princess Leia to Han Solo

I've been working on the cast of Star Wars -- sort of like crocheted action figures. They're much taller than the real action figures, but shorter than Barbie dolls.

I realized just a bit too late that I had forgotten to flare the arms. Had I thought of it a few rounds earlier, it would have flared much more. Oh well.

In the movie, she's sort of got leggings under her dress/robe thing.

Her iconic hair. I wanted to make braids and then twirl them into buns, but this worked better. (It's sort of a flat-ish ball that I smooshed down flat against her head.)

My little guy, so you can see the scale. He's sort of sweet on dolls.

Now that I've seen Owly's incredible hair tutorial (http://owly.wordpress.com/2007/08/27/amigurumi-hair-tutorial/), I want to rip off all these dolls' heads and do them over! I'm actually looking forward to trying this method for Luke.

i've been following your posts, and i LOVE your projects!!!  do you have a pattern for Leia yet?  i'm wanting to make some star wars figures for one of our pastors who is leaving soon.  he works star wars into about every third sermon and yoda is his favorite theologian.  so any patterns you have would be so awesomely appreciated.

thanks, heidi

Wow, thank you! (Sorry for the delay -- I'd been studying for boards and finally have that behind me, which means I can get back to crafting!)

I don't have a pattern, but I *highly* recommend this set: http://www.etsy.com/listing/66328788/patterns-for-all-12-star-wars-mini?ref=pr_shop  (It's the craftster also known as Angry Angel.) They're so cute and small, so they work up really fast. You could make your pastor the whole cast!

I know this post is ancient but I just saw it and the Leia quote is driving me nutsit's "You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought." not "You fly that thing?.." Sorry- I am by no means a SW expert or a snark, but I hate when I get something wrong so I would want someone to tell ME! Smiley
