Yoda Yoda Yoda

I've had a Star Wars kind of year.  Having made the choice to turn our house into Endor for an Ewok birthday party, I undertook the misguided task of designing and sewing 25 plush Ewok dolls, and a handful of light sabers that are now so beat up they look like limp noodles.  My best creation was the Yoda pillow that I made Jasper, I have to say that one was something (it's hard to make a pillow look like a 900 year old man). 

"Truly Wonderful, the mind of a child is"

Today is Jasper's last day of preschool and the graduation theme is Star Wars, no weapons of course.  I offered to sew 30 Yoda headpieces for all the kids. If I had been more ambitious I would have made Leia buns for the ladies.  This is a super easy project, which could be done with a glue gun as well.
