From Star Wars to Marvel…

 Confession: While technically I claim to draw these patterns for my son because he loves the LEGO games so much, I kind of enjoy the games myself. Thank goodness for computer games you can play –with- your kid without dissolving into mind-numbing boredom. So it seems only right that now we have finished LEGO Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars, I draw up some patterns to celebrate the current obsession. LEGO Marvel Superheroes. Please note, I did say draw the patterns, not piece them. I should perhaps tackle my many other in progress projects first.

So without further ado… here are the first 6 LEGO Marvel Superhero (some by request – seriously Jane, what have you got me started on?!).

LEGO Marvel Superheroes

So just in case you’ve been looking for a pattern for a LEGO Spiderman, Wolverine, Hulk, Thor, Captain America or Iron Man, well… look no further. Well okay, you might need to look a little further. As in these need to be tested before they’ll be in my shop – as freebies. (Hands up if you’re keen to test!).

I’m listing these as a Work in Progress… mainly because my darling J keeps coming in and saying “What about suchandsuch character?” or correcting me on the colours in my sketches. Even as I write this blog post he’s asking “Where’s Ms Marvel?!” What would I do without him?! I’m also a little concerned it’s going to be like the LEGO Star Wars patterns… where I’m not permitted to stop until ALL THE CHARACTERS are done. Dear God. What have I started?!

Just quietly though, I think Thor is my favourite.

Thor2

Because you know. He’s Thor.

  2. No, no, no, Wolverine is way more awesome!

  3. Oh my - you have been BUSY!! My favourite X-Men character (love those movies!) is Wolverine. I knew a blonde headed Thor when I was a teenager. He should not have been named Thor. A name depicting skinniness would have been much more appropriate. Your Thor however, is great!

  4. Hulk is my favorite because he is is so green. You should know better than to start in with anything that concerns Lego... unless you want your shop to double in size!!

  8. Yeah - you may have started something here - I can't commit to testing at the moment, but just as soon as Spiderman is available I may have to make it for my nephew!

  11. I love these! My brother (33 years old and feels no shame) loves comics. I wanted to make a mario quilt for one brother this would be great for my other brother. Ive never paper pieced anything before so it would be a challenge but I've got to try it!

  12. I wouldn't mind testing this for you. My nephews love the Lego series games. They will sit and talk to you for hours explaining the characters. My 13yr old daughter also loves the Lego batman games. I don't have my own blog but if one is needed I will definitely start one. I have always wanted to be a pattern tester. My email is craftingmomma07@gmail.com.

  17. It's funny how some of these things take on a life of their own. These look awesome. I'd love to be a tester for you. I could lie and say my kids love all things LEGOS and Superheros...but it's really my husband.

  22. Very very cute! I think Hulk may be my favorite, but it's hard to choose!
    Your Star Wars Lego blocks have been on my (very lengthy) to sew list for quite a while. There just aren't enough hours in the day!

  25. Wow... Um, yeah, Thor. My kiddos are already counting down for the Lego movie...

  26. I love your patterns! And I am afraid to show these to my son....as it might lead to another project. However, I am raising my hand if you still need testers. I am fairly new to paper piecing but I really like it!

    ReplyDelete
  27. my two younger boys just saw these & they love them! but Hulk is definately the best super hero :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. These are amazing! And I definitely second the request for Ms. Marvel--your little one has good taste!

  29. These are cute! My nephew would go banana's if I made him a Lego quilt. He is a Batman fan. I would love to try them out.

  30. So awesome! I have the boys and I think need to learn how to paper piece to make these and the lego clone wars quilt. My family dressed up as the avengers for halloween and my husband put our heads into an avenger movie poster for our christmas card(he's really good with photoshop). He was Thor, I was black widow, and my sons were hulk, iron man and hawk eye. Thank you for your hard work!

  31. Hi they are amazing love them, I'm new to paper piecing but loving it. I realise I'm a bit late to the party but I would love to test any patterns for you as a beginner. Right off to piece together Darth Vader just a bit to go!!
