As you can imagine, it’s not easy to find accessories for a Star Wars themed nursery. Bring on the DIY! My latest project was a repurposed mobile.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, it looked like this:
I took it apart and measured the fabric pieces that came with it, making patterns and using leftover fabric from the R2D2 quilt to ‘reupholster’ the arms and hanger.
Then, I freehanded a felt Death Star to glue over the round mechanism up top.
Sadly, it does not play the Imperial Death March – ‘Lullaby’ will have to do. BUT, the little plushes that I bought on eBay to hang from the arms make their own noises when you squeeze them. Chewwie roars, R2D2 beeps, Yoda pontificates, and Vader breathes heavily… Jawa’s eyes even light up! So still pretty cool.
Each character is attached with embroidery floss, a decorative button, and a generous gob of hot glue.
