This is a geeky craft after my own heart! Bean posted this molecular embroidered coffee cozy on Coyote Craft. This is the perfect gift for me! Um. I mean, this is the perfect gift for that coffee-addict in your life who not only loves homemade gifts, but knows exactly what is in their coffee (caffiene and water molecules are featured on the cozy).
If you are like me, you just can’t live without coffee and video games. Luckily for us, Etsy seller sewtara has combined both into an awesome coffee cup cozy! Now your late night gaming sessions won’t be interrupted by annoying things like sleep. If gaming isn’t your thing, that’s not a problem either because she has lots of other geeky options to prevent embarrassing coffee cup burns on your hands.
Any hardcore Harry Potter fan is familiar with the summoning charm “accio.” I spotted this adorable handmade crocheted and embroidered coffee mug cozy, in Gryffindor scarlet and gold, on Etsy in Knotworkshop’s shop. There’s no guarantee that the cozy will help your morning caffeine jump start your brain, but it will certainly add to your geek cred.
With the latest movie hitting the box office, I went in search for some TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Tutorials) to share with you all! I found this cool coffee cozy knitting pattern on Ravelry, designed and posted by Strawberry Knits. The mask actually ties in back, and you can of course pick the color of your favorite turtle for your own ninja-powered coffee accessory. You can download the pattern free, and there’s a simpler version where the mask is knitted as part of the body of the cozy instead of separately. You even have the option of downloading just the written pattern or a pattern and photo tutorial. Have at it, knitting ninjas!

Did you know that June 16th is recognized by Star Trek fans as Captain Picard Day? According to Memory Alpha:
Captain Picard Day was an annual event held aboard the USS Enterprise-D for the ship’s schoolchildren. Activities included a contest, judged by Captain Jean-Luc Picard himself, in which the children created paintings and models of the captain. Picard was himself not very fond of the event, as he generally did not respond well to children.
To honor Captain Picard’s favorite beverage, here is an easy mug cozy for you to whip together to enjoy a cup of tea. Earl Grey. Hot. Katie over at Punk Projects has all the how-to details waiting for you in the Ready Room. You still have time to make one before Tuesday.
How do you plan to celebrate Captain Picard Day?
