Star Wars in September - Dath Vader Bedspread

When Fender told me he wanted a Star Wars room the first thing we did was look for a bedspread.  The bed is such a major focal point in a kid's room that it is the easiest thing to change.  As we shopped around for bedspreads we found a lot of ugly Star Wars ones out there.  They were also pretty pricey, so I bought Fender a plain bedspread and did my own Darth Vader version!

I used my new favorite technique for simple fabric applique just like I did on Fender's Boba Fett bag.

Besides the one on the pillow case, I also added one at the foot of his bed.  And since his bedspread is reversible, I can flip it over, fold it back and have it two different ways.
But Fender likes it all black.  He says he likes it on the "dark side."
