DIY Millennium Falcon purse will get you past that fashion blockade

Excited for the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, costume designer Mikaela Holmes set to work on creating a leather purse that not only resembled the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy but could hold a bit of junk itself.

At Instructables, she shares her step-by-step process for creating the stylish Millennium Falcon purse, which boasts such wonderful accents as LED lights to illuminate the ship's hyperdrive module and, better still, a radar-dish button.

"As I recreated my own version of this beloved vessel, which so embodied the heart of the original movies," Holmes writes, "I think I was also channeling all of my childish excitement and wonder into my creation, willing this new incarnation to capture some of the magic of those first adventures."

You can get the full guide and patterns at Instructables.
