Jedi robe daily (because one must look like a Jedi to jump and feel like a Jedi on the trampoline).
Celebrate the BOY. And I started with Chewbacca, beloved Wookie and best side-kick ever? Totally!

Wookie is in the air.
So I channeled the love and came up with my own version. The Chewie Shirt:

Be careful as you sew that you're ONLY sewing Chewie to the front of the shirt! Just work slowly and pull the back of the shirt away as you go. And you're done!
