In which the Star Wars Chickenpants come home

Confession: I used to be suuuuch a Star Wars nerd. No, really. I'm talking writing my own trilogy caliber of nerd. You used to be able to ask me any Star Wars question, no matter how obscure, and I could answer it. I COULD NOT BE STUMPED! Little boys everywhere looked up to me in awe.
So naturally, I jumped at the chance to participate in Stitch Wars, the textile Star Wars art show. I just had four strapping Chickenpants return home from Stitch Wars...Luke & Leia, Han & Lando. Secretly, I'm more than a little thrilled to see them again. They were so much fun to make, and I just love how they all turned out.
I mean, just look at Han's hair:

Chickens don't get much more handsome than that.

Remembering how hard it was to make Princess Leia's buns still freaks me out.

And, to round out this horn-tooting post, allow me to share with you one of my proudest Stitch Wars achievements: Luke Skywalker's belt, complete with lightsaber:

Thanks for sticking around with me and putting up with my chest-puffing-outing! I just had to share these guys.

p.s.: I just realized that I left no links whatsoever for you. You can find these guys at my Etsy outpost, as well as Artfire. (I just started accepting Google Checkout & Amazon Payments over there, by the way!) So there you go. Give them some clicky love.
