Star Wars Bag Puppets Craft at Maker Faire

Bonnie Burton | May 27, 2010

Every year we do a Star Wars craft demo at Bay Area Maker Faire to show fans of all ages how to make something fun and show off their love for Star Wars at the same time.

In the past, we’ve shown kids how to make Yoda dolls, Star Wars marble magnets, Ewok sock puppets and Yoda stick puppets.

This year since puppets were such a hit, we showed fans how to make Star Wars bag puppets of Admiral Ackbar, Yoda, Princess Leia and an Ewok.

Of course, our fans are a creative bunch, so we saw lots of original creature puppets as well as a dead tauntaun (complete with guts), Salacious Crumb, Princess Leia with pink hair, Chewbacca and more.

The film crew from G4 TV stopped by so their host could make his very own disco Jawa puppet, and they even interviewed Admiral Sackbar himself!

Be sure to check out all the photos from the event here:
