BB-8 is the cute little droid everyone loved to see roll across the screen of the Force Awakens. Here’s a little back story:
“BB-8 was first seen in the The Force Awakens teaser trailer released by Lucasfilm on November 28, 2014.
In the film, the robot is the astromech droid of the Resistance X-wing fighter pilot Poe. Poe entrusts him with a map that must be delivered to the Resistance headquarters in order to determine the whereabouts of Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker. While Poe is captured and interrogated by the sinister First Order commander Kylo Ren, BB-8 flees across the desert of the planet Jakku and finds sanctuary with the plucky scavenger Rey. Eventually Rey, the renegade stormtrooper Finn, Han Solo and Chewbacca bring BB-8 to Resistance leader Leia Organa, and ultimately reunite him with Poe.”
Great, right? Well anyways this mat/rug is perfect for any room in your house, and is a great conversation piece. Because who doesn’t love Star Wars?
(If you have a wood or tile floor you want to put it on, get some no-slip rug patches from your local store for cheap)
The dimensions of my Pixel BB-8 are 32 inches by 24 inches. I make each square separately, and then sew them altogether by hand 🙂
It can be a great gift for a house warming party, also.
