"Utinni!" says the Jawa.
This Jawa is not giving up this pillow ... not even to trade for The Egg.
This Jawa put together the free pattern for this pillow for you to make one for yourself.
May you enjoy some soup and sew a bowl of ...
"Bone Broth For The Little One"
My daughter, who is the Jawa, and I got together to make this design.
Yes, My Girl made her Jawa costume,
and several other Star Wars cosplay costumes.
My Girl is very creative.
My Girl did most of the designing and pattern writing.
I did the pattern testing and sewing
and added the fabric applique instruction details.
Our collaboration is called "Me & My Girl Designs"
and we are sharing this free applique block pattern with you.
We had so much fun designing and making that this is going to be the
first in a series of free patterns based on this character.
We are already working on Block 2 in the series.
My Girl and I designed this because we are fans of all things Star Wars.
When our kiddos were growing up it was family tradition to watch
the original Star Wars trilogy from the Gold VHS Boxed Edition
every New Years Eve,
while eating Dad's homemade pizza
and sipping non-alchoholic grape juice and sparkling cider.
When I visited her in Texas in November and December,
together we watched the first five episodes of
The Mandalorian on Disney +
Spoiler Alert ::: Spoiler Alert ::: Spoiler Alert!

This scene appeared in my favorite Episode Four.
The pattern name and soup quote are actual dialogue from this episode.
When I returned home I signed up for this streaming service
so I could see the rest of the series.
If you are staying in right now need some joy in your life,
consider catching the antics of this cute little one.
There is a lot of bad guys being bad guys, good guys being good guys
and battle violence in the scenes,
but this little "Baby Yoda" makes me laugh.
The animation that brings this puppet creature to life,
... to look and act like a human toddler ...
is a real work of art.
Neither I nor My Girl are associated in any way with Disney or Disney Plus.
We are just fans.
This is fan art in fabric.
This block is designed to make a 12" finished machine applique block.
Here are the fabrics I used for my pillow.
All are from my stash and only the woven sashiko fabrics
for the collar and robe were new to my stash.
Starting tomorrow, I will be posting a series of photo tutorials of how I sewed
this applique block and how I made the pillow.
I am not an expert in machine applique
and I am self-taught by trial and seam ripper.
I hope this will help others who have not sewn this kind of pattern
who want to try their hand at something new.
I took many photos trying to show the beauty in the details of the colors and fabrics.
It was a morning of bright sun and shadow of early spring in my yard when I took these.
These photos are now on my desktop slide show
to brighten my day and make me smile every time I see them.
I loved making this pillow and feel it is the best applique I have ever stitched.
Here is the back of my finished pillow.
I enjoy making this type of envelope back with snaps.
It is very easy to do with the right tool.
My tutorials will include making this pillow back.
I gifted this pillow to My Girl to enjoy
This free pattern is "For Personal Use Only."
It is Not For Sale or Resale.
Please enjoy sewing one of these for yourself or as a gift.
Please do not sell items you make with this design
as that violates the "not for profit" user agreement.
"Cute I am. Sew me you will"
