I realize that bacon isn’t exactly geeky. But it is delicious, and I imagine a lot of geeks love bacon, so I present to you Serena’s Felt Bacon Ornament. It will make a great last minute Christmas gift, if you didn’t get your bacon scented car air freshener in time. There is a full tutorial on her blog, including how to make it smell like real bacon!

Shanna Hampton just let us know that her husband’s geeky-cool Etsy shop, Pixel Party is barrelling towards their 500th sale, and number 500 will win a prize! The Geek Bracelet pictured on the left is among some really cool pixel art, so get that order in if you want a chance at being number 500!
Etsy is always a great place to find the extraordinary, and the things that can’t even be described with a word that includes “ordinary”. Steampunk Cthulhu Goggles by RobinRed, completely fantastical and beautifully crafted.
I love the plush genius of Heidi Kenney (aka My Paper Crane) and she has just shared a free pattern for making your own Harry Potter doll for holiday gifts! She’s crafting this one for her mega-fan younger son… I wonder who else will be lucky enough to get one this year? Download the PDF and instructions here.
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.
