So I'm a huge nerdling. I like spooky things and scifi things and cartoon things. The list goes on. I don't have any little ones of my own to pass my intense passion of awesome things on to but I've realized recently that that's what my sister's kids are for! As such, I was super pumped when my niece decided she wanteds her birthday this year to be Star Wars themed! I was even MORE pumped when my sister asked me to make up some treat bag toppers for her.
I think I went overboard. But only a little. And okay, I know this isn't even slightly related to sewing, but it's my blog so it's my rules! Sorry! My sister's concept was sort of a paper cutout minimalist look. She's very into handmade everything, so even though these were printed, she wanted them to have a similar unique look! So I popped in A New Hope (actually I made it all the way through Attack of the Clones using Machete Order which says to watch 4 and 5, then 2 and 3, and finishing off with 6) and using the list of treats she gave me whipped up some different character icons and space and world scenes!
It had been a few weeks since I had gotten any Illustrator drawings done so the fact that I did these all in a day made me pretty happy! I'm not going to lie, the sad AT-AT is my favorite. Although I'm also pretty happy with my Tattooine landscape! The party went off without a hitch. The kiddos all went to a local gymnastics center where they participated in "Jedi Master Training." Then they dined on chocolate dipped pretzels that looked just like light sabers and cupcakes that were frosted to look like mini Chewbaccas! I'm happy to have had a small part in some of the favors for the kids!
