To assemble 

-Stuff the handle and the light beam, sew the light beam to the handle. You could also place a cardboard tube into the light beam and handle to make them both stronger and less flexible.

-Sew on the grey band to the top of the lightsaber

-Sew on the yellow/gold band on the yellow/gold section

I am really glad these have worked out well so far and following these successes I still want to make a few more – I’ve already got the next one in mind!

    1. Thank you, sorry for the confusion – all my patterns are in UK terms. I’ve done that before with patterns and not realised the terms were in US and not UK – only once I got halfway through I realised something wasn’t quite right!
