In addition to the Bay Area R2 Builders, Star Wars fans were treated to two days of craft tutorials. On Saturday, kid and adult fans alike spent the afternoon with Starwars.com making Ewok sock puppets. Over 100 Ewok sock puppets were made with a variety of googly eyes, pom pom noses, felt outfits and brown socks.
The next day, Starwars.com returned with another fun craft — Yoda stick puppets. With just a simple felt cut out of Yoda, his Jedi robe, googly eyes, and plastic chopsticks – kids created and customized their own Jedi master puppets.
Bay Area Maker Faire was a huge success complete with Starwars.com winning an Editor’s Choice Blue Ribbon for Best Craft Tutorial!
Special thanks to craftster and friend Terri Hodges for all her help and creative know-how during the Starwars.com craft tutorials for Maker Faire.
