Star Wars with The Berry Bunch

Hello! I am Jessi and I blog over at The Berry Bunch! When I was given the opportunity to sign up for Crafting Con I knew I wanted to sign up for Star Wars, but wasn’t quite sure. So I sat on it while trying to make up my mind because so many of the themes are awesome! But decided to go with it, after all, I love Star Wars! I grew up with it, and for as long as I could remember, my siblings and I acted out the movies. So this had to be it!
So off to Tatooine where Han Solo has been defrosted and Boba Fett is after him again. But not without looking out for the dreaded Tusken Raiders (Sand People) first… And doing so as quickly as we can before the monsoon storm closes in!

I have been majorly into color blocked tees recently and decided to do that for little man’s look. He always comes up to me asking about the Boba Fett fruit snack and what it’s name is, so I thought a color blocked tee like Boba Fett’s helmet would be perfect.

I used the Peek-A-Boo Pattern Shop’s Classic Ringer Tee and drafted onto the pattern what I wanted the shirt to look like, then traced it onto separate paper to add in seam allowance and separate out the pieces. I also appliqued a flag on the sleeve like the flag/antenna on Boba Fett’s Helmet.

For his pants I used Blank Slate’s Clean Slate Pants. I added a cargo pocket to the side and welt aviator pockets. Little man calls them his awesome pocket pants. We are a big fan of pockets here.

Then I thought, who better to go with Boba Fett than Han Solo? The two are after each other all the time (not really, they get along really well), and it seemed to fit. Plus, my niece has this really cute top where the vest is part of the shirt. I wanted to do something like that for Baby Girl and this was perfect! I used the GYCT Design’s Tinley Tee for her shirt, and cut two fronts, one normal and the other in two parts but with less of the center and more open in the neckline. I tried to do a lettuce edge around the vest part.

Her pants are self drafted from one of my favorites of hers. It took a couple tries, but since my printer stopped working I needed to do something. The stripes on the side are purple instead of red to girlie it up. I used freezer paper to stencil it on.

For her Yoda hoodie, I used the Kitschy Coo Reversible Zippy Hoodie and cut the hood smaller, inserted a gusset. I quilted the gusset to mimic the wrinkles on Yoda’s head. For Yoda’s ears I cut out this shape here, and sewed them together with pipe cleaners. I made a slit and sewed the ears into the side panel of the hood. I lined the sweater with Star Wars Flannel! Perfect for the severe temperature drops that occur once the sun goes down in the desert!

Check out the back of her sweater. I read that in my head the way I think Yoda would say it. :) Freezer paper is amazing!

All the outfits are made using re-purposed clothes that were either ours or had picked up from goodwill except for the sweater lining! I had so much fun sewing up these outfits. Happy Sewing!
If you need me, I’ll be at my machine making some Yoda hoodies for my own kids! They are just too cute! Thanks for sharing your Star Wars look with us Jess!

      I’m so glad you guys love it!!
      I’m sorry to say I’m not currently selling this sweater at the moment, nor do I have a tutorial. I may look into selling them again later and/or create a tutorial for the hood, but not in the near future.
