Mace Windu gets the paper piecing treatment!

When Kristy at Quiet Play asked for pattern testers for her new range of Lego Star Wars blocks, I was the first to stick my hand up! Any excuse for some paper piecing fun! She asked me to try out the Mace Windu block and I must admit I had to google the name as although I've seen the films, I don't know all the characters. The most difficult part was finding fabric the right colour for his face, but eventually I think I found the right one.

The block came together very easily, probably getting a bald character helped! I'm pleased with the results, but I haven't decided how to do his face yet. When I googled the lego character, there seemed to be 2 different facial expressions - normal lego features or really angry and a bit wrinkly. I wanted to link up to Kristy's paper piecing party so he'll have to wait a bit for a face!

My nephew has just got into Lego Star Wars, so I think I may be trying out a few more of the blocks, but which one next? Head over to Kristy's Craftsy store to get some of her great patterns for free including C3PO and Princess Leia.

May the crafty force be with you!

  1. Oh he turned out great! Perfect fabric choice for his skin. I think the faces are definitely going to be the hardest part of these blocks. Look forward to seeing how yours turns out!
