Giant Totoro

Giant Totoro

LadyKatka from Ravelry made this incredibly huge Totoro. Seriously, he weighs 14.8 lbs. For those people without Ravelry accounts, do not despair, all the photos are on Flickr too. It’s worth clicking through for the rest of the photos – my favourite is the one where he takes up her entire backseat.

Pokémon Easter Eggs!

It’s Easter!! And what better way to celebrate than an Easter egg hunt with Pokémon eggs?! Gotta find ‘em all!

Yaltro on Flickr made this fantastic selection of Pokémon Easter eggs, with food dye, sharpies and white out. The first lot were made in 2011 and the second lot in 2012… I hope there’s a third lot on the way this year!

Why not give it a go yourself this Easter? My favourites from this lot are Psyduck and Snorlax! Do you have any other ideas for geeky Easter Eggs?

No, it’s not international food week on Geek Crafts. Around here, the sun is trying its best to keep the ponds from freezing, but it’s not working out too well. Bikini season seems years away. Plus, this weekend’s Easter. Eggs! Chocolate! Meat! It’s the perfect time of the year for food!

This Friday round-up I’d like to focus on kyaraben, short for character bento. Let’s see what Wikipedia can tell us about it…

Geeky Cookie Cutters!

Totoro and Oliver

I found some AMAZING cookie cutters on WarpZone Prints on Etsy, and I just could not resist trying them out!! So, I ordered a few and here’s the finished result! I absolutely love them!! I also have a Mr. Drippy cutter, but I wasn’t able to get the cutter to come out very well, so that needs some practice I think! Athey Moravetz from WarpZone prints makes all the cutters with a 3D printer, and can make custom cutters as well as all the ones in the store!

My boyfriend has recently got me watching Naruto, and I’m loving it! So, to celebrate this, here’s some awesome Naruto crafts on Etsy! I really want the crocheted shuriken so I can throw them at my boyfriend at random moments…

As always, click on the picture to go to the treasury!

Cursed Mr Drippy Amigurumi

Cursed Mr Drippy

After my post a few weeks ago featuring the Mr Drippy Amigurumi on Kitten’s Crafts, I decided I wanted to make myself one, and then make a cursed version of Mr Drippy (before he comes to life!) So, with permission, I adapted the pattern to make my very own cursed Mr Drippy amigurumi pattern!

Please DO NOT sell anything made from this pattern. I do not own the rights to the character Mr. Drippy and so it would be illegal to make profit from it. Also, part of this pattern is by Jastra Alethea on Kitten’s Crafts, and she has asked that nothing made from her pattern, which is freely available, is sold. Make them for yourself or as a gift, but please, do not sell them! Thank you!
