Star Trek Serenity Prayer Cross Stitch

Star Trek Serenity PrayerWe’ve all had those days. You spill your full latte all over your new shirt. You miss your bus, and you’re late for work. Or maybe a race of cyber-zombies has taken over your planet.

It’s moments like that in which we seek a little inspiration…and this pimpin’ Locutus of Borg Serenity Prayer is there to remind us that indeed, resistance is futile.

This one-of-a-kind, Star Trek-inspired cross stitch was made by Emily and Matt Fitzpatrick, the wife-and-husband team behind Steotch.

Infusing classic New England needlework with pop and hip-hop culture references, Steotch is also responsible for such beauties as Bless This House and a Star Wars inspired version of the Serenity Prayer.

For you cross-stitchers, patterns are now being offered in their Etsy store, so you can make your own snarky Steotch creation.

Unicorn Roundup

The amazing Team Unicorn proclaims: “Geek Girls: Like unicorns, we’re not supposed to exist!” In honor of their awesomeness, this Roundup is featuring the best Unicorn Crafts around the web. Buy or craft some Unicorn gear for yourself, or treat your favourite geeky lady to some Unicorn gifts.  Once you’re done here, check out their video for more proof of how Team Unicorn Rocks!

*****************************************

10.  Unicorn Bookmark

The perfect way to hold your place in your favorite book.  It is simple and elegant, but the colorful jewels lead to the little unicorn trinket.  A discrete way to boast geek girl pride.

9.  Unicorn Clay Necklace

Hang your Unicorn pride around your neck with this clay necklace.  This delicate piece captures the grace of the mythical beast, and the sparkling eye will capture attention.

8.  Embroidered Unicorn

This adorable unicorn is embroidered in bold colors on a heart fabric background.  This little guy has some major personality with his spiky hair, flaring nostrils, and flower collar.

7.  Luna the Unicorn Amigurumi

Everyone could use a cuddle Unicorn.  This pattern for Luna will help you make a Unicorn army to take over the world with… or at least to snuggle with.  Make one for every geeky girl you know and spread the Unicorn word.

6.  Valentine Unicorn

This little Valentine Unicorn was sculpted from Polymer Clay.  Her big eyes and swirly pink hair might be a cuteness overload for some, but shouldn’t everyone make an exception for cuteness on Valentines day?

5.  Where Rainbows Come From

We interrupt all of the previous cuteness with a revelation on the origins of rainbows.  This 4×4 print says it all.  Position it above your computer so the Unicorn appears to pour rainbow geekiness into your monitor.

4.  My Other Ride is a Unicorn

This shirt makes me want to visit my mom’s ranch and wear it while horseback riding.  Either that, or wear it while beating my friends in some Mario Cart.

3.  Unicorn Hat

This hat is perfect if you want to tell the world about your Unicorn/Geek status.  However, it might make it a little awkward if your friend is wearing the shirt featured in #4!

2.  Mounted Unicorn

Some people appreciate a good trophy.  This crochet Unicorn’s name is Matthew, and he perhaps got bested by a geek girl who then decided to show him off.  Matthew is sure to make visitors do a double take.

1.  The Last Unicorn

The last in this roundup is an icon for many geek girls.  The Last Unicorn is a book and movie that many grew up loving.  This little plushie made from microplush, faux fur, and faux suede also has a wire skeleton that makes her poseable.  The crafter artist did a great job of bringing to life our favorite Unicorn.

Mixtape Postcards

Who doesn’t love a mixtape? Lovingly created, song by song by someone who cares enough about you to not only use their double tape deck to transfer a song from one tape to another, but even sit next to the radio for hours, waiting for the right moment to hit “record” when that perfect Descendants song came on the radio.

Or should I say, who over 25 doesn’t love a mixtape? Eh, whatever. Anchortag captures the fun and romance of a mixtape, without the need for a working tape deck. These Mixtape Postcards would make an awesome Valentine, and they are for sale at her Etsy shop!

Year of the Moon Buns

Happy Chinese New Year! In honor of the year of the rabbit I am featuring my favourite amigurumis, the Moon Buns! Moon’s Creation has so many different Moon Buns for any season or reason, and I think all good geeks should show their excitement for the Year of the Rabbit with their favorite Moon Bun. I’m certainly ready for the tumultuous year of the tiger to be done with and the tranquil year of the rabbit to take over – here’s hoping, right?

Tiny TARDIS

What a lucky little Time Lord! I wish I would have gotten a TARDIS for my birthday! Mateo’s dad, Brian, made this out of corrugated paper, and his mom, Jennifer posted it on on her blog. This is the cutest thing I have ever seen. The light on top is amazing! Brian is working on plans for this, so everyone can make their own TARDIS. I’m going to make one that’s my size ;)
