Star Wars Cross Stitch

Happy Star Wars Day, aka May the Fourth! I try to observe this day each year with some kind of pattern or project, and this time around it's two free cross stitch charts!

I've been designing cross stitch patterns for over five years now, and I even have a cross stitch book coming out this year, but these are my first Star Wars designs. In fact, my book Cross Stitch Celebrations: Bundle of Joy is how I decided on the first design: Baby Yoda. You see, this little creature is my favorite Star Wars bundle of joy, and I HAD to put my spin on him.

But first, let's just address the Baby Yoda name thing. Amy Sedaris' character Peli Motto says it best: "Grogu? Whoa, that's a terrible name...No way am I calling you that." If she can say that, I can agree and go with Baby Yoda. We all can.

Okay, so now let's talk about this little cross stitch design! My sister stitched the sample for us and it's on 14-count Aida, fitting perfectly in a 3-inch hoop. That means it would also work really well for a pin or patch. And who wouldn't want to sport this grinning little green guy?

But then as I was working on this, another source of Star Wars joy came to mind:

This is my Princess Kneesaa stuffed Ewok toy from when I was little. Yes I still have her and love her. The Ewoks were literally my first introduction to Star Wars. So when a few folks on Instagram encouraged me in this direction, I had to make some Ewoks in cross stitch too.

These patterns came along a little later, so they aren't all stitched yet, but the chart has Princess Kneesaa, Wicket (I forgot that these two were married!), and a slightly more gray version of Tokkat. I absolutely love that so many Ewoks have names and back stories due to the extra shows and specials that came out...even if they weren't the best!

Anyway, Kneesaa is helping me finish stitching, and I haven't decided what I'll do with the finished Ewoks yet. I'm stitching this one on 16-count Aida, so they might be good as a bookmark? I'll post an update on Instagram at some point.

Now, are you ready to start your Star Wars Day cross stitching?



As a reminder, I make these kinds of patterns for fun and as fan art, so the charts are for personal use only. And May the Fourth be with you!
