This is an original crochet pattern of my design to make a mini Princess Leia, wearing her white dress and with her iconic hairstyle. At only 3.25" tall you can easily carry her around, or she'll fit nicely on your desk.
The pattern is fairly straightforward and suitable for beginner/intermediate crocheters. The instructions are detailed and easy to follow if you know the basic stitches and techniques used to make amigurumi.
The pattern is a downloadable PDF file, along with an extra PDF with general instructions for Star Wars patterns, and you will need Adobe Reader to open them. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have as you are making your Princess Leia.
*This pattern was updated 11th October 2013 with a new way of doing the hair and other small variations. If you bought the old version of the pattern and would like the new one, just contact me with your order details and I will send the updated version to you.*
