One of the first things I did was look up what color Yoda's light saber is. Because if you're doing a hand-made nerd gift you found on the internet, you might as well go full nerd.
All of my learnings suggested that Yoda has a green light saber, and I'll be damned if I'm going to sit through Episodes 1 through 3 again
I also decided to change the letters to two shades of blue that I've got around for my recoloring of Octopus's Garden. For something like this, I'm on my own for colors. The pattern is basically just the big version of that picture, so I've got to either try to do my best match (Yoda himself) or go off on my own.
And here's the finished version. I thought about trying to give Yoda a face, but then I remembered that I hate French knots.
