Want to make your own cute little Ewok?
Check out Wild Olive (here) for a free pattern and instructions.
It's such a simple pattern I think even first time sewers (and/or kids) could make it (in fact, I may have mentioned it to my boss. Her 8 year old son is insterested in learning to sew and this would be a great first project since it doesn't involve a machine or sewing on the wrong side and turning or any of the "hard stuff").
I learned something else today, too.
The actual ewoks from the Star Wars movies were UGLY. I mean REALLY UGLY! How the hell did I ever think they were cute? Their faces are disturbingly human/bear hybrid freaky. . .yeah, just not cute like the little Wild Olive ewok.
Let's just pretend the real ewoks aren't as freaky-fug as they are, huh?
(and yes, I'm going to make my own Ewoks--in fact, I think my cat nephew Lowell needs one for his toy box--he already has a tribble)
