Let's Get Our Geek Craft On!



I'm a crafter, but I'm also a geek, so anytime I can combine the two is a good time for me. I'm going to admit, I didn't become a Star Wars fan until I was in my early 20's. I'm almost 33 now and I can't even imagine why it took me so long to watch all the movies and start to love them. Now I'm a huge fan, as is both of my kiddos and my husband, of course. While I've always thought of cross stitching as something old ladies did, I'm starting to really enjoy it myself, especially now that I had a chance to try out this Star Wars Cross Stitch kit!






I am obsessed with this kit! I know virtually nothing about cross stitching, but recently things like cross stitching and crochet have made a huge come back in the younger generations. Myself included as I've been getting back into crocheting the last three years after not picking up a hook since I was 8 years old. I'm excited to learn to cross stitch. I've been playing a cross stitch app on my phone for months and I really enjoy it. I also do perler bead creations which use the same concept as far as patterns go. 

This kit comes with a book that features 12 patterns, an easy-to-follow instructions, a needle, and a hoop. The kit also comes with the cloth and embroidery floss for two projects—the iconic Star Wars logo, and a detailed portrait of Yoda. 

They are organized by skill level, which is great for a beginner like myself. There are patterns for quotes and logos as well as popular characters like BB-8, Boba Fett, and more. Not only is it a fun project, but you can decorate your home with cross stitched Star Wars pillows, towels, bags, blankets, and framed photos. I'm pretty sure this will keep me busy for hours. And it's not just fun for myself; it's fun for the kids to create as well! Just make sure you help them out a little so they don't poke themselves with the needle of course. 

This set is available for pre-order with a release date of September 12th.
