Princess Leia
Leia Organa Solo (born Leia Amidala Skywalker) was at various stages of her life a
politician, revolutionary and Jedi Knight of the New Jedi Order. An accomplished Senator,
Leia was most famous for her strong leadership during the Galactic Civil War and other
subsequent galactic conflicts, making her one of the galaxy's greatest heroes.
She had a forceful personality and bright intellect, having accomplished much in her
youth: she was a strong proponent for the Rebel Alliance, the youngest Senator ever of
the Galactic Empire at eighteen standard years of age, and a member of the Royal Family
of Alderaan. Years later, she was instrumental in the creation of the New Republic, and
was elected to the position of Chief of State, serving twice in that office.

Now lay two circles on top of each other and stitch them onto each other, so you get a
slightly thicker circle. If you want a more dramatic effect, fill the space between the
circles with stuffing.

At this stage, you can attach the safety eyes.


Next were going to stitch Leias lovely hair. To achieve a great look for your new
customer, Leia, divide the head into two sections, in the middle (use the eyes for
reference). Now start stitching with the brown yarn from the center to Leias ear from her
forehead to her neck. Ask Leia if shes satisfied with the result. She knows best. Now
attach the hair buns you made earlier to Leias ears.

Give her a nice smile with red thread.

Part 3: Arms
Arms, in white, make 2
The fun part about this amigurumi is that its arms have joints, so you can move Leias
arms around. This will prove helpful for when she walks into an army of whatevers.
You can chose how to make the joints. I work with a cotter pin or a safety eye, but you
can also thread wire through the arms and the body. I will explain how to use my
method. A little tutorial on how to use the other method can be found here:

Stuff the arms lightly, sew the hands on the arms.


Now stuff Leias body. Dont overstuff, as well create a waste for her.
Now give Leia her beautiful silver belt. Try pulling it tight, so it creates a waste.
