Happy Star Wars Day!
My weather app just told me that in 30 years, it has rained 26 times on this day where I live! But on May 4, 2014 the weather was sunny and perfect. That was the day I got married! The calendar says we have only been married for 3 years, but it feels like we have known each other all of our lives! My husband really is my best friend, my favorite person to do everything (and nothing) with, and he always supports me even when I think I’m losing my mind!
We got married on Star Wars day for a few reasons. One, we are big dorks and it seemed like a fun idea! Two, it is easy to remember our anniversary that way! A third bonus reason we’ve discovered is that it makes it easy to find at least one gift for the big day every year, because we always get something with a Star Wars theme, even if it is something small.
This year, I actually requested something specific. Star Wars crochet!
Making crochet dolls or characters is known as amigurumi. I have never tried it before, so I think it will be a fun challenge! And when I’m done I will have a couple of cute Star Wars dolls to keep and remember this special day! I will update as soon as I can with the finished dolls!
Have you ever made any crochet amigurumi patterns? Share with me on Instagram or join my Facebook group to share with an awesome group of like minded fiber artists!
I’d also love to see ANY Star Wars themed projects you have done! My friends are also big Star Wars fans, and I’d love some inspiration for things I could make for them! For now, I’m off to spend the day with my hubby!
May the Fourth Be With You!
