I immediately fell in love with this Star Wars Solids Quilt that Emily of Creative Chicks at Play made for her son’s 12th birthday. The front is amazing, and the back is a killer Star Wars sheet – plus her long-arm quilter inscribed “May The Force Be With You” into the quilting!
Man I wish I could draw. Then I could try to make these for myself! cakewalkqueen made a pair of Exploding TARDIS sneakers using sharpies! She based them on a pair she saw on Etsy that feature Van Gogh’s drawing of the TARDIS exploding from the Doctor Who episode “The Pandorica Opens”. One shoe says “The pandorica will open” on the outside and the other says “Silence will fall”.
“Knitting may be a centuries-old craft, but the results can be quite high-tech. For example, it’s now possible to store data on a scarf. And the good news is, the construction is completely open source.”
I can’t knit, but it’s things like this that make me really wish I could. Once you get started the possibilities are endless, binary cardigans, binary baby clothes?
Give one to the friend you trust not to eat your brains when the zombie apocalypse hits!
Kimby posted this gorgeous Last Airbender blanket on her DeviantArt page. It always amazes me the designs people can make with crochet. The four symbols are perfect! And it’s huge…I want one! She has the pattern and tutorial on her blog, with tips. The most important one: “And this one last, very crucial tip: Make sure to watch your Avatar DVDs while working on this blanket. On repeat. For several hours at a time…”
Nostalgic. Stylish. Practical. These are just some of the words that I would use to describe 8BitMemory‘s portable hard drive made from an NES Legend of Zelda cartridge. 8BitMemory can put an entire terrabyte of extra space (or 500GB or 750GB if you prefer) into pretty much any old cartridge!
Alternatively, if you’re feeling that DIY itch and want to give this a shot on your own, cr0ybot on instructables has a breakdown of how to put together something similar.
