This was one of the first projects I ever set out to stitch, back around 2007. The first attempt was on white with all the blue in the sky filled in. After two months I put it away. After I finished the Dark Lord’s Apprentice, I decided it might be cool to do sort of the same thing (negative space for the background), obviously just much more less abstract:

Here are a a couple detail pics and a behind-the-scenes pic of me goofing around:

On the business side of things, this is the 150th post at Han Stitched First! You read that right: one-five-zero! A big thanks to everyone who has visited the site, left a comment, told a friend and especially those who continue to stitch cool Star Wars stuff and letting me share it with the rest of the galaxy! When you consider that the site wasn’t even around until YEARS AFTER Episode III, the future looks even more exciting. May The Stitch Be With You All.
I am a big fan of the in-universe books like The Book Sith and The Jedi Path. Even the Essential Chronology (and the NEW Essential Chronology) is written like a history book. This lightsaber blueprint by Lord Libidan looks like it could have been stitched by some Jedi Master on a backwater planet with no access to flimsy or a holocron. I’m sorta geeking out, sue me.

New-ish craftster user shwashington86 shared this blanket she made for a friend who is expecting:
Does it come in a “big baby” size? You can see the original post, along with her Superman themed gifts (what, no Darth Dino?) here.
Kadie, my six-year-old daughter, has made My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic a part of my life almost as much as I have made Star Wars a part of hers. Although she doesn’t know who Grand Admiral Thrawn is, it didn’t matter. We both fell in love with this cross-ver amigurumi by DeviantArtist and “Hook for Hire” MasterPlanner
As a “Brony by Association” I have seen a bit of MLP Amigurumi and I have to say this is some of the most well done.
Here is a completely original piece (I haven’t seen one, anyway) by DeviantArtist LoreaLopez
You can see more of her work on her blog.
I came across this old saying reworked into Yoda speak stitched up by DeviantArtist BlushiexD
She stitched this piece from a pattern by Scootybeth. You can find a link on her post.
I’ve been pretty open minded about this whole “Star Wars Legends” thing where the previous Expanded Universe no longer exists. I mean, more Star Wars is more Star Wars, am I right?! So with the spirit of an open universe I present this awesome plush of Darth Equus by DeviantArtist Drachefrau:
Who is Darth Equus? Shame on you. He is the Dark Pony of the Sith. Seriously, Drachefrau says her husband is not a Brony but is into unique Star Wars stuff his friends don’t have (me too, buddy) and this is the result. Pretty cool. You can see more cool things in her gallery.
I am warning you right now: this is not the last time you are going to see DeviantArtist MasterPlanner here. She is doing some pretty amazing stuff. She is a hook for hire according to her artist page and she made this amazing (and amazingly adorable) Grand Admiral Thrawn by request:
You can also check out her Tumblr page, where I know she has some exclusive craft pics…from time to time.
Here is a nice cross stitch of Naboo’s royal symbol by DeviantArtist kookers5707. Honestly, it is refreshing to see something other than the Big Four (Rebel, Empire, Sith and Jedi) emblems getting some love.
You can find her DeviantArt page here with plenty more from Trek, Stargate and even (kinda excited) The Magic Schoolbus!
Here is a cool couple of pieces of embroidery that combine to show the fate of Alderaan. Well, maybe not the fate since that would be an asteroid field (too soon?) but certainly the destruction of Alderaan.
You can find pictures of the individual pieces on her flickr stream.
