Inside: 11 Baby Yoda embroidery design ideas for the little Star Wars fan in your life.
Now I’m no Star Wars buff, but as soon as the Mandalorian series dropped into the Disney+ streaming platform, my whole Instagram feed was filled with Baby Yodas. And Twitter. And Facebook. Everyone loved a good Baby Yoda meme. I think we could all relate to the screen grab of him bundled up holding a mug of a warm drink.
Now that the rage has died down a little bit, there are still quite a few mega fans of Baby Yoda. I know that the little boy that I babysit loves his plushy Baby Yoda, and he loves to tell people that they look like him.
If you have a little one in your life like this or you know a big Star Wars fan that happens to love Baby Yoda more than the rest, here are some really cute embroidery design ideas to give them! Or maybe YOU’RE a big fan of the little guy. Then you need these for yourself!
I love playing around with character embroidery– it’s so fun to bring them to life through a thread and needle. It’s a different media than we usually see them in, so it almost makes it feel more personal when you have a piece that features someone like Baby Yoda through stitching.
Who Is Baby Yoda?
So, shockingly enough for me to find out months after the fact, Baby Yoda isn’t really a baby version of the Yoda we all know and love! This character we’ve named baby yoda is actually a new character all of his own.
He’s the same species of course as Yoda, but he is a toddler in the time setting of the Mandalorian. His name is Grogu, and while he isn’t exactly the Baby Yoda we believed him to be, he is still Baby Yoda in our hearts.
I use the words our, us, and we, knowing full well that most of you probably know exactly who he is! I am simply an outside observer on this entire fandom, ha!
What’s The Obsession?
I remember when the Mandalorian dropped, it was like I had missed something huge! But thank God for social media to keep me in the know of course.
Everyone fell in love with the little character and the quirky screen grabs you were able to get of him during the show. There were so many little funny things about him and the way he interacted with the other characters had audiences obsessed with him!
He became a favorite character of children that just thought his mannerisms and his interactions were just so funny. Multiple of the kids that I babysit have stuffed animals of Baby Yoda, or Grogu and love to talk about him like they know him in real life, just like they talk about the Paw Patrol puppies and Max from Max and Ruby.
His baby-like features naturally draws a fanbase, a theory that has been tested and proven to be effective when creating a character that will attract crowds. When something is stereotypically “cute,” it draws people in! This we know from puppies and kittens, of course.
Other than all of these factors, I think people just loved seeing the same race as Yoda in a different form! You can’t help but fall in love with the character.
Baby Yoda Facts
Naturally, we all want to know a little bit more about this adorable creature that we’ve all found a quirky love for. He’s precious and simply such a fun character to get to know, learning more of the details about him is a fun element to watching the Mandalorian on Disney+!
Obviously the first one is one that we’ve already covered: he’s not actually the baby version of Yoda. He’s simply another of his species that is young at the time of creation.
He gained powers from his predecessors– and is the only one to have done so in this series universe! He’s truly one of a kind.
Funny enough, Baby Yoda/Grogu in season two has been revealing his love of macarons. Blue to be more specific! What flavor are these blue macarons? We don’t know for sure, but we do know that he loves the blue ones!
Despite he’s meant to be the young “baby” of the series, he’s actually 50 years old.
Mando is meant to be Baby Yoda’s father, but in an adoptive sense.
