Boba Fett Amigurumi

Amigurumi ain’t easy – at least they are more difficult if you don’t have a pattern.  I’ve personally been working on a prototype for a Boba Fett for my hubby since before his birthday in September (unsuccessfully, I might add).  Thankfully, Craftster user Angry Angel has not only created one cuter than I was even imagining, but she is also offering her pattern for him on her Etsy.  I can’t wait to create my own from this pattern so he can sit ominously in the corner of my living room while I work on making more amigurumis.  Perhaps a whole Boba Fett army, or maybe one of the other ten Star Wars characters available in LucyRavenscar’s Etsy shop!

The Socks That Should Not Be

Alligatorjuice made this Cthulhu sock monkey as a Christmas present for her friend Maria. It began as a drawing Maria made for her at work: “she does all sorts of spiffy doodles. one day, she doodled a cthuloid sock monkey, and left it on my register. when i went to cash out a customer, i saw it. i then had to explain to the customer why i simultaneously laughed, choked and turned funny colors…”. It’s amazing how this manages to be cute and a little creepy at the same time I think it’s the eyes).

Alligatorjuice expected the heels to change color after she dyed the socks green, but I’m glad they stayed red. They match the eyes, and adds to the whole evil vibe.

It's bigger on the inside!O-mazing!!!  I wish I had this block style door just so I could paint it blue <3

Flickr user normaljean has this TARDIS door in her home, and there’s even a gallery of photos showing the work in progress.   A musician and general artist, she definitely has awesome work, so check out her photostream for fun crafts and adventures! (adorable mini felted things! omg!!)

NES Bedding

For a second, lets take a moment out of our busy lives to thank God for Instructables.

Yes, that is what you think it is, a queen sized bed with handmade NES themed bedding!

Imagine sleeping in this, dreaming about Duck Hunt, shooting your light gun… wow… I NEED IT!!.. you need it too?! you’re in luck!! (kinda) Looks like rpaxton might be looking to make another and sell it on E-bay since the one she sold in December 2010 made a whopping:

$433.52

that’s £278

Wow… it kinda makes me hope that one day I might be able to make money out of this stuff too! HAH – NOW who’s dreaming!

Brain Bracelet

Brain BraceletWearing your heart on your sleeve is so cliche. How about wearing your brain on your wrist?

Amy Sweetman’s store, Anatomology, is chock-full of gorgeous anatomy-inspired jewelry, such as this eye-catching brain bracelet.

What intrigues me the most is the unique magnet-based clasp, which is designed to keep the charm from drooping on the delicate silver-plated chains.

This line wasn’t born out of a gothic obsession with human organs, though. Sweetman, a professor of psychology with a focus on neuroscience, created the collection as a way to heal from a devastating breakup.

Her works centers on the heart, brain, and spine, and each piece of jewelry comes with an inspiring message such as courage, integrity, or harmony.
