All Wings Report In – Submission Request

Hey All,

The Star Wars “holiday” is almost upon us. I speak, of course, of May The Fourth (not the Star Wars Holiday Special). Don’t forget that if you or someone you know has a Star Wars inspired needlework piece, you can share it with me by email to hanstitchedfirst@gmail.com or also on twitter (@whateverjames).

I love when my fellow fans share their works of art with me and I love sharing them right back with the rest of the galaxy. So send me a message, maybe a pic and/or a link and show off a little. If you or anyone you know does NOT have a Star Wars inspired needlework piece to share…well there are still a few more weeks ;)

Leesub Sirln by LucyRavenscar

You probably remember LucyRavenscar from ChewbacctoberFest. You probably don’t remember Leesub Sirln from the Cantina scene in Episode IV: A New Hope. That’s ok. Open a new tab and do a quick search. Now that you’ve seen her, check out this “beautiful leggy alien with a large head”:

Now, what’s even cooler than breaking from the Big Three and even all the better-known side characters is that Lucy didn’t make this piece for just anyone. She made it for the actress who PLAYED Leesub Sirln in the movie! By request! You can pop by her blog to see more pics as well as see the really neat gift she received in return.

Power of the Dark Side by mauoijenn

So this is a really cool piece by Craftster.org user mauoijenn. I had thought of stitching a wordy piece before but admit to a bit of intimidation. But this is impressive. Most impressive.

Balance Of The Force by Whatever James

by Whatever James

One of my silly pieces. I’m trying to talk my wife into letting me hang it over the bed.

I made this using an android app called A-stitch. As I stitch on the bus a lot I love having a digital pattern I don’t have to carry around or rummage through multiple pages. I have not found a lot of pattern makers for Android, so I highly recommend it.

The Coruscant Tapestry by Aled Lewis

In terms of “epic” Star Wars needlework it may not get more “Epic” than this! The Coruscant Tapestry by Adel Lewis is a cross stitch piece telling the entire story of the Star Wars films with quotes from the film in Aburesh. It is also THIRTY FEET LONG!
