Today is Star Wars day. I think next to my husband's birthday it has to be his favorite day. Due to him and my niece, who is also a fan, I have made a lot of little things Star Wars related.
Did you see the present I gave my niece? I wrapped it to look like a lightsaber and it was filled with Hershey kisses that were also Star Wars themed.
More recently I posted about the Death Star cake I made for my husband's birthday.
Well, I also made my niece another lightsaber, but this one was a crocheted zipper pull.
I am happy to offer you the pattern.
