Felt Bacon Ornament

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!

Accio Brain Coffee Mug Cozy

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.
