When it gets cold outside, it gives you a good excuse to retreat indoors and start a new hobby. Why not give amigurumi a try? That’s a fancy term for the Japanese art of crocheting or knitting dolls. By getting started with the Star Wars Amigurumi Vehicle Patterns now, you might just have some fantastic gifts ready to give to your loved ones for the holidays.
You’ll need a 4mm / size 6 crochet hook, DK yarn and stuffing. Begin by crocheting the Star Wars vehicle you love most. It would be hard to decide between the TIE Fighter, Millennium Falcon, and X-Wing, so you might as well get all the patterns from the start. The three patterns are just under $15 US. Otherwise, you can order the patterns individually and try out some of the other options available such as the AT-AT, Naboo Starfighter and Imperial Walker.
Adult Star Wars fans will adore their amigurumi vehicles and put them up on display next to all their other Star Wars items, while kids will love playing pretend combat with their soft, handmade spaceships that looks very close to the real thing. Imagine if you were a kid and your grandma gave you a whole set of hand-crocheted Star Wars vehicles as a gift? Now that’s a pure act of love and kindness.
Star Wars Vehicles Amigurumi Patterns are very affordable, starting at around $4 US and not priced more than $15 for a set of patterns, from the MysteriousCats Shop at Etsy.com. The rest of the investment is your elbow grease, crochet supplies, yarn, stuffing and time.
