JANE STEWART is a lifelong crafter. For the last few years she has been tying many, many knots in things. She created the Macramé Periodic Table of the Elements featured in Make: Volume 67 and exhibited around the UK in 2019.
Last November the world met a precious little creature officially known as the Child, in the new TV series The Mandalorian. The internet instantly named him Baby Yoda. I was already planning to do more Star Wars macramé (I’d previously made an R2-D2, lightsaber, and Death Star) and Baby Yoda was so cute I just had to try.
Seven months later and I’ve made over 50 macramé dolls of him, become a Facebook moderator on a fan page, and even founded my own FB group chronicling my mini Baby Yodas.
My first design was based on the show, but with a sparkly coat. Here’s how I made him.
