It was recently my hubby's birthday and I wanted to make him something as well as buy him some gifts. He likes Star Wars and I'd bought him some Star Wars DVDs for presents so thought I could have a go at crocheting a Star Wars character to go with his other gifts!
I did a search online and found this free tutorial for a crochet Yoda.
It was a wee bit fiddly and to be honest I didn't follow it exactly (I am useless at counting stitches as I go!) but I was really pleased with how he turned out.
I couldn't find my stock of googly eyes so ended up using card and a black pen to make eyes which I glued on.
I am pleased to say that hubby knew who it was supposed to be as soon as he opened the parcel and is very happy with his mini Yoda!
He's not super sturdy so he's been put up high on a bookshelf away from little toddler fingers (Mr Mischief was most keen to play with Yoda when he saw him!)
Now I might have to aim to make one Star Wars character each year for hubby's birthday!
