I figure I really ought to get in the rest of the Star Wars craft posts today, given that it is Star Wars day and all...In addition to the ever so geeky bedding array, I also made a couple of other things I'd like to share.
I wish the pics were a little clearer, but It's the same Imperial symbol as on the comforter, but smaller and using 2 Robert Kaufman space fabrics. There is also a strip of the red fabric at the top and bottom of the towel in the area where there is usually some racing stripe of interest stitching.
I wonder undered the 2 pieces together for the Imperial symbol, and then stitched it onto the towel. Not EVERY little space is stitched but the main center area and the outside edges are. We shall see how that holds up! lol Matt's great for letting me experiment my man scientisting ideas, as well is Mom. lol. The racing stripes on top and bottom were just stitched on after ironing under a 1/4" seam on each side. Super simple!!
The magic stitchy wash away transfer stuff that you can print with your standard ink jet printer can be purchased here:
This stuff is like...shipped directly from Hogwarts school of magic, to your home...it's frakkin amazing.
Here we are with the magic Hogwarts transfer stuff all washed away. In addition to this being stitched, I also got grey glow fabric paint made by Tulip and added some highlights as a surprise when the lights are turned out. The outer edge of the Death Star, the outer round of the eye, and the 2 horizontal lines through the middle are all painted grey over the stitching (which matched) and glow when the lights go out.
The image of the death star is about 8x8 to give you some perspective on size. And the Death Star looks more ominous a stitching project than it really is. I stitched it in about 3 days, but it only took that long due to the fact I MUST take breaks every 20 - 30 mins to rest my arms. So honestly, it's a very easy project for someone who doesn't have damaged arms or hands, I promise!!
Thanks for reading, and happy crafting!!
