The STAR WARS Saga.......XD

So. I finally have watched the first four Star Wars movies. They are amazingly cool! People have  always said " you haven't watched star wars?" and mum been like, "oh, yeah we should watch them some time.And. Finally we found out that a good friend from church, Kaity King, owned the movies and allowed us to borrow them! Now i don't want to spoil it for those who haven't seen it, so i'll just talk about the characters.Movies 4,5 and 6 were made before the others (1,2,3 are a prequel) so i would suggest watching them first, cos the first three kind of ruin it!

The Characters.(from all movies)

Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn.



( Liam Neeson!)
This guy is cool! And i love his green light sabre! it's hard though to imagine jean valjean with long hair!
He is one of the lead characters in this movie. He is working with his padawan ( jedi apprentice)
Obi-Wan Kinobi, to save the planet/country of Naboo, ruled by queen Padme Amidala.

Obi-Wan Kinobi



Queen Padme Amadala



The thing about Padme is that her handmaidens, Rabe and Sabe, act as decoys, so, when Qui-Gon lands on the remote, gangster ruled planet of Tatooine, the real queen Padme goes with Qui-Gon, disguised as one of her handmaidens.




Anakin Skywalker.





Anakin is a little slave boy that they meet in Tatooine. Qui-Gon believes that the Force is strong with him and takes him along to train as a Jedi.Usually, Jedi get trained from birth, before they can experiance fear and anger.

Shmi Skywalker.



Anakin's mother. Qui-Gon won Anakin in a bet, but was unable to free Shmi from slavery. Shmi dies in the second movie, Attack of the Clones.

                                            R2-D2 and C-3P0



R2-D2 is a droid who saved Padme's life.He was then allowed to travel with her and the two Jedi.
C-3P0 is a Standered Cybot Galactica protocol droid. These droids are made to be translaters between humans and other space life. Anakin made C-3P0 to help his mother. When Anakin left to train as a Jedi, C-3P0 stayed behind.

                        Lott Dod                                             Rune Haako                           Nute Gunray

    

These weedlesome  three are working for a dark lord, Darth Sidious, and trying to take over Naboo and kill Padme.

Darth Sidious.(the phantom menace!)



The evil one behind everything! but i dont want to give it all away!

Jar Jar Binks.



Jar Jar is a Gungan who is on exile from his home city Otah Gunga, in a swamp in Naboo.
Qui-Gon runs into and saves him.

Darth Maul.



Working for Darth Sidious, he tries to kill the Jedi a few times. Sadly, he manages to defeat Qui-Gon, but is quickly defeated by Obi-Wan.

Boss Nass.



The ruler of the Gungans. Padme pleads for him to ally them in the battle with the droids.

Yoda.



The oldest Jedi master and kind of the "leader".
He speaks like this: "when 100 years old you reach, look as good you will not."                           he's really funny.

Mace Windu.




A Jedi Master.He is one of my favorites.

Padme and Anikan.



"Mawwidge. Mawwidge is wot bwings us togedda touday."  so sweet.

Obi-Wan Kenobi.(later on)



I like him better in the 2nd and 3rd movies.

Anikan. (later on)



Luke Skywalker.



I think i like the other Jedi better, but he's okay.

Leia Skywalker.



Leia is really cool! she's like a kind of supergirl.

Han Solo.



The guy who fly's luke to the rebel base. he's pretty cool. he likes leia. i will say no more.

Darth Vader.



THE VILLAIN. no.not really. i won't reveal.



SO. if you haven't watched them. watch them. YOU WILL watch them.YOU WILL enjoy them.

Loom Band Tutorial - Friendship Frill Bracelet

Hey guys!
I can't believe it has taken this long for me to put a tutorial on here! Sadly my video's don't work on here so I've done it in pictures. This is a cute as bracelet called the "Friendship Frill" bracelet. My BFF designed it and we both made it.It is really cool so please try! We had so much fun making the video tutorial for it so is was a pity that it didn't work! ): 



Anyway, enough chit chat, lets loom!

You will need:
 


48 bands in all. It is good to use 3 different colors, so 16 of each.
we used pink, yellow, and black.

12 black  4 for extension.                      1 loom

12 pink   4 for extension.                       1 S clip

12 yellow 4 for extension.                      1 hook

Have your loom in a straight configuration. The pins should be even at both ends. Have the arrows pointing away from you.

Taking the twelve pink, you will lay them on the outer edge of the loom, as if you were making an ordinary chain bracelet.


Lay it like this to the end of the loom.


It should then look like this.^


Then you will lay your yellow on the middle row, in the same way.



Lay it like this to the end of the loom



It should then look like this ^

You will now do the black bands. These should be placed in a square.
You should NOT MISS ANY PINS!
Like below..



You will lay them like this to the SECOND TO LAST PINS.


Like this ^


On the last pins a black band must be twisted round twice.
This is the cap band.

 Now it is time to hook!
Turn your loom around so that the open side of the pins faces you.


Go inside the black cap band and hook the yellow to the next pin up.
Do the same with the pink.


It should look like this ^


Hook the yellow all the way up the loom.


It should look like this.^



Do the same with the pink, right to the end of the loom.


It should look like this.^


Slip your hook inside the yellow and black bands and take the yellow over onto the pin with the pink.


Then pull through them a pink band.


Slip the pink band onto your hook and pull the bracelet of the loom.

  
Slip one side of the pink band over the other to make a loose slipknot.


It should now look like this!

At the other end is the cap band. Slip this on to your hook.


Then pull a pink band through it. This is going to be the extension. Just keep slipping the next band through. It should look like a normal chain.


Like this ^



I did my 4 pink then 4 black then four yellow, as above.


At the other end, undo the slipknot.




Attach it to your S clip.


It should look like this ^


And now you have a really cute little bracelet!


I hope you liked this tutorial and the bracelet and I hope to do another tutorial sometime!
